Illinois Senate Picks Cullerton for New Two-Year Term
The November election delivered to Cullerton a 40-19 majority over Republicans. That's the most Democrats elected in the Illinois Senate in at least 120 years. Cullerton's caucus members come not only from the Democratic stronghold of Chicago but from the far reaches of the state with varying philosophical ideas. A lawyer and public defender, Cullerton has served in the Senate since 1991 after serving 12 years in the House.
Republican Sen. Christine Radogno was chosen as minority leader.
