    After ten days of vote tabulation, former Illinois Appellate Court Justice Eileen O’Neill Burke declared victory in the Democratic primary for Cook County State’s Attorney late Friday afternoon with a razor-thin margin over her opponent, former prosecutor and University of Chicago lecturer Clayton Harris III, who conceded after the Associated Press called the race.

    She will face former Chicago Ald. Bob Fioretti, who ran unopposed in the Republican primary, and Libertarian candidate Andrew Charles Kopinski this November. She is favored to win in the county that typically sides with Democrats.
