20th District: Two Democrats want the chance to take on Republican Rep. Michael McAuliffe. Jerry Acciari is a retired police lieutenant from Niles. Mo Khan is a Park Ridge native and law student who served as a campaign aide to Hillary Clinton and Alexi Giannoulias. He has a lot of energy and ideas on how to use technology in education. He supports term limits and an independent redistricting system. Khan is endorsed.
At 28, it is Khan’s first run for elected office. An accountant, he is a full-time law student at Loyola who worked for Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign in 2007-2008 and for Alexi Giannoulias’ U.S. Senate campaign in 2009-10. In between Khan helped friends and colleagues form startup businesses, which leads directly to the reason he says he is running — job creation. He wants to help community colleges become small business incubators, among other ideas. For Democrats hoping to break Mike McAuliffe’s grip on the 20th District, Khan is a young and energetic choice. McAuliffe, a moderate Republican and the son of former legislator Roger McAuliffe, has held the seat since 1997 with no challenge since 2004... Khan is endorsed.
Democratic Primary: Park Ridge accountant Mo Khan is a bright young man who is making his first bid for public office while simultaneously attending law school. He is full of fresh ideas, energy, and courage. Before the House voted to approve the same sex marriage bill in November, Khan announced his support for the measure. Khan has been aggressively seeking the Democratic nomination – without establishment support – since the summer, drawing donors and door-knocker volunteers alike to his cause. His opponent mysteriously appeared on the last day and at the last hour of the candidate-filing period to submit his petitions. Khan is endorsed.
