Uphill Battle For Illinois GOP With Democrat Drawn Map


Despite ongoing concerns about the state economy and budget under Democratic leadership, the odds are stacked against the Illinois GOP when it comes to challenging Democrats for control of the General Assembly.

 

Republicans need to pick up a dozen seats — six in the state Senate and six in the House — to win a majority in either chamber for the first time in a decade.

 

But they're trying to do that in new legislative districts drawn by Democrats to help Democrats.

 

And even though every House and Senate seat is up for grabs, nearly half of those races are uncontested.
