WHEATON – The national electoral spotlight is on DuPage County-centered 6th Congressional District, the New York Times says. The "well-educated district that swung 15 points toward Hillary Clinton" in the 2016 president election is being viewed as a bellwether race. 

The race between Republican incumbent Peter Roskam and his Democrat challenger Sean Casten is very, very close – one percent in favor of Roskam, the NYT poll shows.

"Most experts consider this race a tossup," the NYT writes. "Neither side needs to win any particular tossup to win control, but the party that wins the most will probably take the House. Our poll result is about what was expected."

Poll findings are in the New York Times.
