The IL GOP primary voters picked north suburban attorney Kathy Salvi as their nominee to challenge US Senator Tammy Duckworth in the November 2022 General Election.
Duckworth's voting record while in the US Senate has coincided directly with radically-left US Senator Dick Durbin's and the radically-left "Squad" in the U.S. House.
The contrast between Salvi and Duckworth's political views will be like night and day – Salvi is pro-life. Duckworth is pro-abortion. Salvi is pro-legal immigration. Duckworth is pro-open borders. Salvi is for utilizing all forms of energy. Duckworth demands an end to using fossil fuels.
The list goes on and on …

Salvi won by 35,000 votes over second-place Peggy Hubbard, a downstate political activist that lost to Mark Curran in the 2020 US Senate IL GOP primary.
Hubbard was not happy with the reported results.
Hubbard resisted the Salvi win, pointing to the number of counties she won in comparison to Salvi. Hubbard wrote on her Facebook page at one point: "This is why I am not conceding! … I took 78 counties out of 102 …"

Piton wrote that votes had been stolen from him – and he showed receiving 9% in the election results on ABC 7 News.
