*** UPDATED - Comments now open *** Democrats release new congressional map - More Latino strength - Newman, Casten in same district - Kinzinger, LaHood mapped together - Miller, Bost mapped together

Saturday, Oct 23, 2021

* Press release…

The House and Senate Redistricting Committees today released an updated version of the proposed congressional map that accounts for public feedback while improving minority influence.

“These new proposed congressional boundaries are historic and reflect the great diversity present throughout the state,” said Rep. Lisa Hernandez, Chair of the House Redistricting Committee. “The proposal ensures minorities, as well as the rest of Illinoisans, have an equitable voice in representation in Washington. I want to thank everyone who has participated in helping our bipartisan redistricting committee collect feedback, and I look forward to additional hearings next week.”

“The changes made in this updated congressional map will help ensure the diversity of Illinois is reflected in Washington,” said Sen. Omar Aquino, Chair of the Senate Redistricting Committee. “We appreciate the many advocacy groups and individuals that continue to guide our work with passion and dedication, as we remain focused on the creation of a fair map that will provide equal representation for all.”

This amended version of the proposed congressional boundaries reflects changes based on testimony received in previous hearings. For example, the map keeps the Round Lakes area together in one Congressional District. This proposal also creates a new coalition district to enhance minority influence.

The proposal can be viewed at www.ilhousedems.com/redistricting and www.ilsenateredistricting.com. The public is encouraged to provide feedback during additional hearings next week.

Tentative Hearing Schedule:

    · House Hearing: Tuesday, October 26 (Time/Location TBD)

    · Senate Hearing: Wednesday, October 27 (Time/Location TBD)

Details on the hearing schedule will be forthcoming as times and locations are finalized. These will be hybrid hearings with the opportunity for in-person and virtual testimony. Those wishing to provide testimony, submit electronic testimony or submit electronic witness slips can do so in advance of the hearing via the General Assembly website www.ilga.gov or through email at redistrictingcommittee@hds.ilga.gov and redistrictingcommittee@senatedem.ilga.gov.

The House and Senate Redistricting Committees also encourage the public to utilize the map making portal. This tool allows residents to draw and submit proposed boundaries for lawmakers to consider. The portal can be accessed at www.ilhousedems.com/redistricting or www.ilsenatedems.com/redistricting. While the portal will remain open for the duration of these redistricting efforts, residents are encouraged to submit their proposals as soon as possible. Returning users that have previously used the portal do not need to create a new account.

The General Assembly is expected to vote on new congressional boundaries by the end of the scheduled fall veto session.

* The proposed map has a majority Latino voting age population district (currently represented by Chuy Garcia) and a Latino influenced VAP district (the 3rd District, which has no current incumbent). Click the chart for a larger view…

The first draft map had a solid Latino district and no significantly Latino influenced district.

* Democratic US Reps. Marie Newman and Sean Casten are mapped together in the 6th CD. Former US Rep. Dan Lipinski is also in the 6th.

*** UPDATE *** Republican US Reps. Darin LaHood and Adam Kinzinger are in the same district (16). And Republicans Mike Bost and Mary Miller are in the same district (12).

* Here are the maps

* Rodney Davis’ district is the 15th, the purple one above which runs from western Illinois, over to eastern Illinois and then back down to near the Metro East.

* Lauren Underwood’s 14th District runs from Joliet out to LaSalle County and up to DeKalb.

* Here are the incumbents and their respective districts…

    Bobby Rush: 1
    Robin Kelly: 2
    VACANT (Latino influenced): 3
    Chuy Garcia: 4
    Mike Quigley: 5
    Marie Newman: 6
    Sean Casten: 6
    Danny Davis: 7
    Raja Krishnamoorthi: 8
    Jan Schakowsky: 9
    Brad Schneider: 10
    Bill Foster: 11
    Mike Bost: 12
    Mary Miller: 12
    VACANT (Nikki Budzinski): 13
    Lauren Underwood: 14
    Rodney Davis: 15
    Darin LaHood: 16
    Adam Kinzinger: 16
    VACANT (Dem-leaning - Rockford, QC, Peoria, Bloomington): 17

…Adding… I should probably remind you that there is no guarantee that this is the final map. Do not automatically assume that there will be no further changes.

…Adding… Also, there’s some misinformation out there from supposed map expert Dave Wasserman. This is really easy to check. Click here for the 2020 candidate list with home addresses. Then copy and paste those addresses into the search function on the map district page.

…Adding… Here you go…

    Just ‘love’ seeing where my area gets clumped in to change with each version of the map…. /s

    Rodney Davis must be thinking “perfect, let’s go with this one”. Though I suppose a deeper red district could open the possibility of him being primaried by an even Trumpier candidate.

    ==Though I suppose a deeper red district could open the possibility of him being primaried by an even Trumpier candidate.==

    Or if the Miller family from Oakland decide to move to either Hindsboro or Isabel.

    If only Aaron Schock had thought Downtown Abbey was a lousy show, then maybe we would have had the long-awaited Aaron v. Adam primary. (As some seemed to speculate 10 years ago, along with Tim Johnson, before he was mapped with Mazullo).

    New Rodney Davis slogan- “These colors don’t run, but I sure do”


  6. - Oswego Willy - Monday, Oct 25, 21 @ 9:34 am:

    Not only has Aaron Schock left 5+ years ago, the person replacing him is now the chair of the RCCC. Just saying.

    Couple quick things;

    Always felt the best thing was to draw out Mary Miller, but I had felt that Bost would be the least likely to have company in a primary with an incumbent, only because that region with Bost left alone allows Miller to face challenges with either LaHood or Davis with the contrast of the uber-Right vs the Right that LaHood or Davis like to claim.

    It’s better for Illinois, the delegation, the country if Mary Miller is no longer in Congress, but a Bost-Miller possible primary is really not helping unless Bost can out-Trump Miller without going full board Mary Miller to do it.

    It’s interesting

    Casten and MN in the same district? One wonders how he drew the short stick?


  8. - Lake Effect - Monday, Oct 25, 21 @ 9:56 am:

    Fav Human - Seniority and identity


  9. - Jim - Monday, Oct 25, 21 @ 10:16 am:

    It is funny how the people who post here all the time do note how this is rational in any way.


  10. - Kent Gray - Monday, Oct 25, 21 @ 11:02 am:

    Mary Miller had zero involvement with the Illinois Trump campaign, and only became a vocal supporter once she ran for Congress.


  11. - Rahm's Parking Meter - Monday, Oct 25, 21 @ 11:28 am:

    I am going from IL 8 to IL 9 in northern AH…. Just wow.


  12. - Oswego Willy - Monday, Oct 25, 21 @ 2:06 pm:

    === Mary Miller had zero involvement with the Illinois Trump campaign===

    How about the insurrection?

    No need to answer, thanks.
