Under Proposed New Illinois Congressional Map, Adam Kinzinger Will Be Gerrymandered Out of His Seat

Kinzinger's quest to save himself from the Democrats by essentially becoming a Democrat has failed.

By the way, you know what's weird? This is obviously a highly partisan gerrymander, as it is designed to take not one but two Republican districts away.

Why is it that partisan gerrymanders like this always satisfy the leftwing courts, while the leftwing courts always cry foul about Republican gerrymanders?

Oh nevermind, the question answers itself.

If nothing else, the proposal strongly suggests the overall direction Democrats are inclined to take. Republicans certainly will not like it. Under its terms, the GOP would face a map intended to force it to eat the state's overall loss of one congressional seat as per the new Census and to potentially lose a second seat downstate. The map overall is designed to leave the state with 14 Democratic congressmen and 3 Republicans, compared to a 13-5 partisan split now. ...

Completely dismembered under the proposal is the district of Rep. Adam Kinzinger of Channahon, who has clashed with Donald Trump loyalists but is still a Republican. Democratic-leaning portions of his district in the Joliet area would be given to Democratic Rep. Lauren Underwood of Naperville to shore up her standing, with Republican sections annexed on to GOP-leaning districts downstate.

Also sharply altered is the district of downstate Rep. Rodney Davis. His Taylorville home and heavily GOP portions of his district would be merged into one now represented by GOP freshman Mary Miller.

Below, some clips from Adam Kinzinger's job application to MSNBC as an "analyst."
