15th Congressional District (-R- Tim Johnson)
Many few Tim Johnson as the most moderate Republican from Illinois outside the Chicago area. This district has been represented by the GOP since 1977. This district also voted for Bush both times and McCain in 2008. Tim Johnson is being challenged by David Gill. The GOP is poised to hold this seat. Johnson holds the money advantage $192,497 to Gill’s $17,114. Not a real strong conservative in the race but Johnson would be better then another yes vote for Obama.
16th Congressional District (-R- Don Manzullo)
Don Manzullo looking strong as usual in the 16th. The Incumbent Manzullo has $429,324 on hand. Democrat challenger George Gaulrapp has only $5,302 on hand. George has gotten very little help from the Democratic Party as well. Manzullo has served this district since 1993. He has stood opposed to moving suspected Terrorist to the Thompson Prison. Manzullo has gotten over 66% of the vote since 2000. An easy win for Manzullo and the GOP. Great win for conservatives!
17th Congressional District (-D- Phil Hare)
The 17th district is another district here in Illinois that the GOP hopes to pick up. A new poll came out showing GOP Challenger Robert Schilling beating the Incumbent Hare 45-32. Hare is a big Pro-Choice democrat. Him and the Speaker work hand and hand on most issues. During the Obamacare drama Hare was caught saying “I don’t worry about the constitution on this to be honest.” This shows just how far out there Mr. Hare is. As conservatives we need to elect Bobby Schilling.
18th Congressional District (-R- Aaron Schock)
Aaron Schock looks like a lock to win re-election. Also, this district hasn’t been represented by a Democrat since 1939. Most consider Aaron to be a fiscal conservative but more moderate on the social issues. Aaron is facing Deidre Hirner. Hirner has $16,727 to the Incumbents $430,736.
19th Congressional District (-R- John Shimkus)
John Shimkus looks like another safe Republican here in Illinois. He is facing a very light challenger in Tim Bagwell. The FEC report shows that Bagwell has $4,546 in the bank compared to the Incumbents $1.4 million. Bagwell and Shimkus faced off back in 2004 with Shimkus prevailing 69%-31%. Look for Shimkus to easily be re-elected in the 19th.
