First, we're talking with the candidates in Illinois' 8th Congressional race. The district covers parts of Cook, DuPage and Kane counties.
The incumbent is Democrat Raja Krishnamoorthi. He has served as a Special Assistant Attorney General for the state and as Illinois Deputy Treasurer.
Krishnamoorthi was elected to Congress in November 2016.
Challenging Krishnamoorthi is Republican J.D. Diganvker. He's a small businessman who immigrated to the United States from India in 1995.
Diganvker said he's running to give a voice to hard working, middle-class Americans.
