In #IL06 D vs D race,2nd term Rep. Sean Casten defeated 1st term Rep. Marie Newman for the Democratic nomination per AP. Newman defeated 8 term Rep. Dan Lipinski in #IL03 Democratic primary in March 2020 & won re-election, but chose to run in newly drawn #IL06 district this year.
Pelosi:”Congresswoman Marie Newman is a proud progressive in the Congress, who has brought energetic leadership to our Caucus.  On behalf of House Democrats, we thank her for her patriotic public service and will sincerely miss her voice in the House.”

The 2022 midterm elections will shape the future of our democracy—and touch the lives of families across the country. Today, I’m endorsing three more terrific Democratic U.S. House candidates who are ready to make the big change we need:
As a state legislator, @DeliaCRamirez has been a champion for working families—fighting to raise the minimum wage, expanding health care, and securing millions of dollars for affordable housing. I’m proud to endorse her for Congress in #IL03 so she can keep up the fight. Photo of Delia Ramirez. Text that says "Elizabeth Warre
I’ve worked with @DavidSegalRI on plans to level the economic playing field, support a responsible foreign policy, and build a government that Americans can trust to work for them. I’m happy to endorse him for Congress in #RI02 because he’s ready to make change happen. Photo of David Segal. Text that says "Elizabeth Warren

Illinois Democrats' new proposed congressional map is up and analyzed on the @FiveThirtyEight redistricting tracker: projects.fivethirtyeight.com/redistricting-…
@FiveThirtyEight I'd call it an even more aggressive gerrymander than their first proposed map. While it has a similar D+13 efficiency gap, it creates 13 🔵 seats, 3 🔴 seats, and only 1 🟣 seat (#IL17). projects.fivethirtyeight.com/redistricting-…
@FiveThirtyEight The map puts GOP Rep. Rodney Davis in a Dem-leaning seat & sets up a likely GOP incumbent-vs-GOP incumbent primary. It also creates a new majority-Hispanic #IL03 at the expense of Marie Newman, who's thrown in with Sean Casten. projects.fivethirtyeight.com/redistricting-…

Breaking: as predicted, IL Dems have revised their proposal to a safer, more aggressive 14D-3R gerrymander. It's still about as ugly as before, though. google.com/maps/d/viewer?… ImageImage
As I hinted last Sunday, this version creates a new, much-anticipated Latino seat (#IL03) on the north side of Chicago. But, it would do so by merging the homes of Reps. Marie Newman (D) and Sean Casten (D) in a reconfigured #IL06.
This version also (very blatantly) merges the homes of Reps. Mary Miller (R) and Mike Bost (R) in a new #IL12, and puts Rep. Adam Kinzinger (R)'s house into Rep. Bobby Rush (D)'s plurality Black #IL01 (!).

Illinois update: this Dem 14D-3R gerrymander is both uglier *and* less effective than I'd have expected.

#IL03 Newman: Biden +6
#IL14 Underwood: Biden +8
#IL17 OPEN (Bustos): Biden +6

All of these seats are potentially flippable in a good midterm for Rs.
Additionally, #IL13 Rep. Rodney Davis (R) is far from doomed in this proposed Biden +11 seat. Dems had the opportunity to make his seat Biden +18 and every current Dem seat Biden +10 or more - and passed.
All things considered: this is just a really weird map. Besides the hideous lines, it carries a big risk of turning into a "dummymander" if Republicans have a good 2022.

It's not hard to see Dems' 14D-3R intent turning into a 10D-7R reality if things go really awry.

Congresswoman Carolyn Bourdeaux flipped #GA07 blue & helped put Georgia in the Dem column for the 1st time since 1992.

@Carolyn4GA7 uses her experience helping to rebuild GA’s economy in the Great Recession to tackle kitchen table issues for working families. #WomensHistoryMonth
Congresswoman Teresa Leger Fernandez fought for decades for equity & investment in the health & economic security of Latino & tribal communities.

@TeresaForNM’s expertise is vital as the House tackles a pandemic w/ disparate impact on these communities. #NM03 #WomensHistoryMonth
Congresswoman Marie Newman’s fight for #Equality4All was a national model years before she came to DC.

@Marie4Congress also works for health care, gun sense, and curbing economic inequality with workforce & infrastructure investment for a green economy. #IL03 #WomensHistoryMonth

1/33 Sorry for long thread, but I want to post this before E-Day:

I've worked for years on an unfinished project to draw nonpartisan congressional maps for every state to analyze gerrymandering. This map shows the 2016 pres margin by hypothetical district. State maps to follow.
2/33 Hypothetical nonpartisan Alabama congressional map with two Voting Rights Act districts (#AL02 & #AL07). Second map shows two Black-majority districts to illustrate a VRA liability.
3/33 Hypothetical nonpartisan Arizona congressional map.

My friend @Marie4Congress is running in #IL03 against a Democratic incumbent named Dan Lipinski. He’s anti-choice, anti-immigrant and anti-LGBTQ – and Marie’s primary is in exactly one week.
We need Marie's voice in Congress fighting for health care, women and our LGBTQ friends and family. But her campaign is running out of funds, and I need your help to make sure she doesn’t get silenced by anti-choice special interest spending.
Every single dollar you give now makes a difference and goes directly to GOTV efforts to help Marie defeat her anti-choice opponent. Will you rush $5 or more? secure.actblue.com/donate/kg4mn?r…
