Representation

The 14th district was represented by Republican Dennis Hastert, who was the longest serving Republican Speaker of the House in U.S. history. The previous holder of this GOP record, Joseph Gurney Cannon represented the district in his early career from 1873-1883 (although he wasn't Speaker until he represented the 18th district). A special election was held on March 8, 2008. Democrat Bill Foster defeated Republican Jim Oberweis by 52.5% to 47.5%.

However, Foster failed to win re-election in 2010. Republican Randy Hultgren won back the seat for the GOP and was sworn in when the 112th Congress convened.
