DescriptionBoth Republicans and Democrats in Kankakee County are throwing support behind state Sen. Toi Hutchinson's bid to take the 2nd Congressional District seat formerly held by Jessie Jackson Jr.

Kankakee County Republicans held a bipartisan rally for Hutchinson, D-Olympia Fields, on Monday, and the Kankakee County Democratic Central Committee handed her a unanimous endorsement earlier in the day. The rally, held at The Homestead Restaurant in Kankakee, featured county and municipal officials from both political parties.

"People are so locked into their differences that we don't talk," Hutchinson said. "But I've never met a person who didn't want good schools, a good job or a safe place to go home. It's about moving all of us forward."
