Rep. Robert Dold (R-IL), of Rose Pest Solutions, was unable to retain his congressional seat (Illinois’ 10th Congressional District) as he was defeated by Democratic challenger Brad Schneider, yesterday.

Schneider won by a margin of about 2,400 votes, according to unofficial numbers.

Dold conceded shortly before 11 p.m. "We can all hold our heads up high after running a good campaign," he said. "We ran a great and positive campaign. I hope you will help build a better future cause at the end of the day that's what it is all about."
