Refuses to accept the results of the 2020 election and peddles the Big Lie.

Praised the overturning of Roe v. Wade and would rubber stamp a nationwide abortion ban.

Opposed the Bipartisan Infrastructure Bill which invests millions of dollars in roads and bridges across Illinois.

IL-17 is rated as D+3. Democrats have a slight advantage here compared to the country as a whole, and must hold this seat to protect their U.S. House majority.

Note: If this office has an incumbent, the incumbent is shown here. Swing Left will support the Democratic nominee following the primary, or pre-primary only if they are running unopposed, with the exception of statewide incumbents in competitive gubernatorial and U.S. Senate races, which have received early support.

Our team considers factors like how a district or state has voted in previous elections, how the district or state has voted depending on the party in power in the White House, the party of the elected incumbent and whether they're running for re-election, and any history of attempts to restrict voting. This year, we're also taking the results of redistricting into account.
