Battleground races

BattlegroundRace.jpg

Illinois is home to three battleground districts in 2014: Illinois' 12th Congressional District and Illinois' 13th Congressional District.

District 12

See also: Illinois' 12th Congressional District elections, 2014

Illinois' 12th Congressional District was a battleground district in 2014 due to the fact that the district had nearly even numbers of registered Democratic and Republican voters. Both incumbent William Enyart (D) and Mike Bost (R) advanced through their primaries with no challenge. They faced off in the general election on November 4, 2014, along with Green Party candidate Paula Bradshaw.[3]

District 13

See also: Illinois' 13th Congressional District elections, 2014

Illinois' 13th Congressional District was a battleground district in 2014 due to the very small margin of victory in the last congressional and presidential election in the district. Incumbent Rodney Davis defeated Michael Firsching and Erika Harold in the Republican primary. In the Democratic primary, Ann Callis triumphed over George Gollin and David Green. Davis and Callis will face off in the general election on November 4, 2014.[3]
