In this Feb. 26 file photo, Robin Kelly celebrates her special primary election win in Matteson, for Illinois' 2nd Congressional District seat, once held by Jesse Jackson Jr. She faces Republican challenger Paul McKinley in the April 9 special election. Kelly, will have quite a challenge ahead after Tuesday's election in the overwhelmingly Democratic district, if she wins as expected: She'll have to fill the shoes of Jackson, whose name and seniority allowed him to bring home lots of bacon, and she'll have to withstand the spotlight of having won with the help of New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg's anti-gun money.
