Jesse Jackson Jr. Wins Reelection to the House of Representatives
Jackson won reelection in the 2000 House of Representatives elections by a 90–10 margin over Robert Gordon.
Because he was elected only to finish the remainder of Reynolds's term, Jackson faced new primary and general election challenges very shortly after taking office. As expected, however, he easily won reelection. His successful campaigns as a political novice, albeit a well-connected one, earned him considerable respect.
