Rodney Davis elected to fifth term in Illinois’ 13th Congressional District

Incumbent Rodney Davis (R) defeated challenger Betsy Londrigan (D) in Illinois’ 13th Congressional District, winning a fifth term in the U.S. House.

The race was one of 56 U.S. House rematches taking place this year; Londrigan was Davis’ challenger in 2018 as well. That year, he won 51% to 50%, down from 60% to 40% in 2016 and 59% to 41% in 2014. Preliminary results suggest Davis expanded his margin over Londrigan this year, winning 55% to 45%.

Both parties’ national committees targeted this district; the National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC) named Davis to its Patriot Program and the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) named Londrigan to its Red to Blue program. The NRCC and Congressional Leadership Fund spent a combined $5.5 million on the race, while the DCCC and House Majority PAC spent a combined $6.2 million.
