Karen Kinney is running for a third term as Rock Island County Clerk. Wednesday night, she kicked off her re-election campaign with a fundraiser in Rock Island.

A democrat, Kinney was first elected in 2010, and won a second term in 2014.

Among her accomplishments, she lists coming in under budget every year, improving customer service, increasing the number of early voting locations, and  "enthusiastically implementing Civil Union and Marriage Equality laws."

 So far she has at least one republican opponent - last month retired Deere executive Russell Christ announced he'll run for county clerk next year.
