More Than 1.2M Voters Turn Out In Illinois Democratic Primary

More Than 1.2M Voters Turn Out
In Illinois Democratic Primary

Democratic Hermanos y Hermanas—

Thanks to you, Illinois Democrats turned out in higher numbers in more than a decade for a mid-term election. Remember, outside of Chicago and upper northwest, the rest of “downstate” Illinois has Republican representation in the House. And like what we recently saw Texas, it’s clear that Illinois Republicans are barely hanging on by a thread for the time being, and it’s up to us as voters to boot EVERY. SINGLE. REPUBLICAN. OUT.

For a list of IL election results, see here.
