ROCKFORD - U.S. Rep. Don Manzullo (R-Egan) easily won his re-election contest against Democratic challenger Bob Abboud.
Manzullo was first elected to Congress in 1992.
Although he lost, Abboud said he was proud of the campaign he ran and said he would continue his fight against Manzullo.
"We're extremely pleased," he said. "It's just that when you take on a 16-year incumbent, it's a big hill to climb in an area that's 3,000 square miles."
