U.S. Rep. Dan Lipinski, one of the last pro-life Democrats in Congress, survived his primary race in Illinois Tuesday, narrowly defeating liberal businesswoman Marie Newman. Lipinski won 51 percent of the vote to Newman’s 49 percent to capture the Democratic nomination for Illinois’ 3rd Congressional District near Chicago. Newman had the endorsements of prominent Democrats and pro-abortion groups who wanted to force out Lipinski after seven terms and a pro-life voting record. Despite the Associated Press declaring Lipinski the winner Tuesday night, Newman refused to concede.
