With the gerrymandered new Congressional map so heavily tilted in favor of the Democrats, the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, or DCCC, is salivating at the chance to retake some very serious ground, if not regain control, in the U.S. House of Representatives. And that path leads right through Illinois. Politico takes a look at the battleground in an article today.
What does this mean for Illinois? It means that this will be ground zero for an influx of campaign cash and support from the national Dems like we have never seen before.
You might think that the DCCC would be a little more cautious about throwing millions of dollars at IL-10 after wasting that much on three-time loser Dan Seals, but that was then (with a less favorable map) and this is now.
This is going to be a very long cycle for us Illinois Republicans...
