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.
United We Dream protesters carry a mock coffin to the office of Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, in the Dirksen Senate Office Building on Monday, July 21, 2014, to hold one of their "funeral services for the Republican Party" due to GOP positions on immigration. The immigration reform group visited several other Senate Republican offices to hold similar funeral services.
