Roll Call moves Rodney Davis onto ten most vulnerable list

Tuesday, May 5, 2020

* Roll Call

Most of the 10 most vulnerable House members are still Democrats, who are defending their majority. But with six months until Election Day, two Republicans join the list. […]

Republican newcomers include Illinois’ Rodney Davis, who clung to his seat during the 2018 Democratic wave and faces the same, well-funded opponent this year. […]

Davis held on by the slimmest of margins during the 2018 wave that swept Democrats into the majority, so he’s no stranger to tough races that attract a lot of outside money. His bid for a fifth term once again finds him up against Betsy Dirksen Londrigan and offers Democrats one of their few opportunities to oust a Republican. The race will be hotly contested, with health care taking a prominent role in the messaging. Dirksen Londrigan had a slight fundraising advantage with $1.6 million on hand on March 31 to Davis’ $1.5 million.

***Urgent: Please read!***


Today, Rodney Davis’ seat was listed as a “Top 10 Most Vulnerable” and Democrats are circling the wagons saying that they expect to flip it in November.

Our opponent Betsy “Leftwing” Londrigan wants to win here. If elected, she would be a key ally for Nancy Pelosi and the far Left. We can’t allow this to happen.

We wouldn’t be calling on you if this wasn’t urgent. Londrigan is using the Pelosi’s campaign arm, the DCCC, and its digital fundraising machine to outraise us by bringing even more national attention to this race.

Our team knows that nobody will fight for Downstate Illinois more than Rodney. Even during these unprecedented times, he is working across the aisle to make sure that Illinois has the resources it needs to help its citizens get through this pandemic.

Meanwhile…. Nancy Pelosi is eating ice cream in her kitchen and pushing a partisan, far Left agenda that is stalling much needed action in Congress.

It couldn’t be any more clear who the problem is. The far Left would rather watch America suffer than work with President Trump and GOP leadership to do what’s right.

Our opponent has already been endorsed by the far Left in D.C. and if she were to win this seat, it would mean that Nancy Pelosi would have another vote in her hands.

We need your help in this fight, Friend. Can you rush in $25, $15, $10, $5, or even just $1 to help us fight back against the unlimited resources of the far Left?

Richard — We have HUGE breaking news to share: Roll Call just named Rodney Davis one of the top 10 most vulnerable members of Congress and IL-13 the one seat in the entire country most likely to flip from Republican to Democrat in 2020.

Flip IL-13 blue
In 2018, Betsy came within less than one point of beating Rodney Davis and her rematch this November is poised to be just as close. Roll Call is calling our race one of Democrats’ “few opportunities to oust a Republican.”

Bottom Line: Protecting and expanding our Democratic House majority starts right here in Central Illinois.

With Rodney Davis now being named one of the most vulnerable members of Congress and a pure toss-up race by several election forecasters, Washington Republicans and their corporate and special-interests backers will amp up their efforts to protect Rodney Davis — and we need to be ready, Richard.

We’ve relied on this grassroots team every step of the way to ensure we have the resources we need to flip IL-13 blue. Will you step up with a contribution of $3 or more to help us raise $5,000 by midnight so we can build on this incredible momentum?


“It’s no surprise that Congressman Davis ranks high on the list of ‘most vulnerable’ incumbents,” said DCCC Spokesperson Courtney Rice. “Between Davis’ continued attacks on Central Illinoisans’ health care and his record of putting special interests first, come November, Rodney Davis will find himself on a one-way, first-class flight back to Illinois.”
