Susana L. Ortiz holds lead over Pat Heneghan in race for the Palmer vacancy

Ortiz has 324,339 votes, with nearly 87% of the votes counted in the suburbs and almost 82% of the City vote counted, while Heneghan has polled 255,177 votes to this point.

Heneghan was pre-slated by the Democratic Party, and was plugged into this race when the Palmer vacancy opened up at almost the last possible moment.

In the eight contested county-wide races, it looks like the slated democratic candidate will only win in four of those races. I don't ever remember a 50% success rate for slated Cook County judges.

To Anon's point, I don't think we'll see many more uncontested countywide races
