M06, Sullivan challenges Lipinski for Congress [IL03]

U.S. Representative Dan Lipinski is the son of former Congressman Bill Lipinski. Here's how Chicago Tribune (Brett McNeil) explained how the baton was handed from father to son.
Dan Lipinski was a University of Tennessee political science professor when his father decided to retire before the fall 2002 general election. The elder Lipinski, an 11-term congressman, opted to quit after winning the primary election.

The timing left an opening on the ballot, and Cook County Democratic leaders followed Bill Lipinski's suggestion, naming his son as a replacement candidate.

The IL03 Congressional District includes much of Proviso Township, including Forest Park (south of Madison), Brookfield, La Grange Park and Westchester.

Dan Lipinski has two challengers in the Democratic Primary. John P. Sullivan has a website. John T. Kelly is the other candidate; Carol Marin (Sun-Times) examines the evidence he's a ringer to split the Lipinski opposition vote.
