No member of Congress has ever called Deerfield home.
No state senator has hailed from Deerfield in more than 40 years.
By early January, the Village will be able to claim Rep. Elect Brad Schneider (D-Deerfield) and state Sen. Elect Julie Morrison (D-Deerfield).
Victories by Schneider and Morrison were two of the significant outcomes from a night of election returns from the reelection of President Barack Obama to Congressional campaigns, Illinois General Assembly contests and county races.
