Women Running in Illinois

As a Blue state, Illinois is reflective of the Democratic electorate. It features whopping black and Hispanic populations, as well as many city goers, and thus is influential in deciding the direction of the Democratic party. Further, Democratic victories in rural Southern Illinois would signify weakness in Trump’s re-election campaign.
