Freshman Rep. Adam Kinzinger will kick off his re-election campaign Saturday in Illinois' redrawn 16th district, setting up a primary contest with one of his fellow Republicans, 10-term Rep. Don Manzullo.
The state’s Democratic-led redistricting plan is tied up in a lawsuit, and Kinzinger’s spokeswoman confirmed that he’ll seek re-election in the 16th if the new map stands in court. A Manzullo spokesman confirmed he also will seek re-election in the 16th district.
Vice President Joe Biden waits to conduct a mock swearing-in ceremony with Sen. Brian Schatz, D-Hawaii, in the Capitol's Old Senate Chamber, December 2, 2014. Schatz was sworn in to serve the remainder of his term since he was appointed to the seat after Sen. Daniel Inouye, D-Hawaii, passed away.
