While it's unclear at two hours after the polls closed if the "blue wave" of democrat votes will truly splash down in Kane County, Democrats have taken some key roles in the state and are on their way to wins in previously Republican territory.

In the hotly contested 14th Congressional District race between incumbent Republican Randy Hultgren and challenging Democrat Lauren Underwood, the challenger is pulling ahead as the night goes on, with 51.7 percent of the vote to Hultgren's 47.3 percent at about 9 p.m.

Democrat Karina Villa has a small lead over Republican Tonia Khouri in the 49th District, with 51 percent to Khouri's 47 percent.

Even tighter is the race in the 6th district between Republican incumbent Peter Roskam (48.5 percent) and democrat Sean Casten (50.1 percent).

In the 65th district, Republican Dan Ugaste is holding the lead over Democrat Richard Johnson at 51 percent to Johnson's 47 percent.

Stay tuned for more race results as they are announced.
