CHICAGO – Five Illinois Congressional seats could be up for change in 2022, according to the Cook Political Report. This week, the 11th CD – now represented by Democrat Congressman Bill Foster – was added to the list of possible party changes. 

NRCC Spokeswoman Courtney Parella was on hand with a comment about the addition of the Foster district.

"It’s no surprise that Bill Foster is one of the most vulnerable Democrats in the country. At every turn, he continues to support Nancy Pelosi’s toxic socialist agenda that has led to skyrocketing inflation and rising crime,” Parella said. 

Others include Illinois' 6th, 13, 14 and 17th.

Two Republican Congressional incumbents are vying for the solidly GOP 15th District: Rodney Davis and Mary Miller.

The 17th is open as incumbent Democrat Cheri Bustos is not running for re-election in 2022.

  1. Cook leans Dem in their prognostication. Here are some howlers from Cook from 2016: https://www.270towin.com/maps/the-cook-political-report
    and 2020: ttps://www.cookpolitical.com/analysis/national/national-politics/trump-poised-face-final-indignity
    In their desperation, the Dems got too greedy with their redistricting. The suburban soccer moms, traditional Dems of Downstate plus Black and Hispanic churchgoers will not deliver for them this year. The only question is whether it will be enough for Jelly Belly to lose despite his gazillions. This is a year that will be very anti-incumbent on both sides. Money won’t mean as much as usual.

  2. The IL-11 in last half of January got really interesting as the Republican primary field grew to a total of 5 candidates, in alphabetical order.
    Jerry Evans, 38, of Warrenville
    Andrea Heeg, 55, of unincorporated Geneva
    Catalina Lauf, 28, of Woodstock
    Cassandra Tanner Miller (CTM), 34, of Elgin
    Dean Seppelfrick, 58, of Aurora
    CTM launched her campaign today including her video, which included her work for Colton’s Law after tragic death of her son.
    Evans and Heeg campaign kickoffs cannot be ignored, and is Ken Griffin, through Congressional Leadership fund, going to direct CLF spending for any of the five?
