Gill won't concede 13th District race

Written by

CHAMPAIGN — A defiant Democratic congressional candidate David Gill told supporters early Wednesday morning that he won't concede to Republican Rodney Davis in Illinois' 13th District race, and that he still thinks he'll win the race.

CHAMPAIGN -- David Gill, the Democratic candidate in the 13th Congressional District race, said Sunday he raised more than $430,000 in campaign contributions in July, August and September, a sum he said was about twice the previous three months.

Official campaign disclosure reports will be filed with the Federal Election Commission later today.

Dr. David Gill, The Hardest Working Candidate

Written by

PDA spent the weekend in Decatur and Bloomington/Normal Illinois this past weekend promoting the benefits of universal health care and supporting the candidacy of Dr David Gill (13th CD Illinois).

Bloomington – The U.S. Supreme Court’s ruling this morning upholding The Affordable Care Act ensures that important gains will be preserved. Democratic congressional candidate Dr. David Gill believes we can do better and he will work to fix flaws with the Affordable Care Act in the next Congress.

This isn't the first time David has run against Johnson. But it's the first time they're running in an evenly matched district.

Hare said Illinois families need more progressive voices in Congress. “I trust David to be a passionate voice for middle- class people,” Hare commented. “I know David will protect the rights of workers. And who better than an ER doctor like David Gill to block the Republicans’ attempts to end Medicare as we know it?”

The November race in the new 13th Congressional District, which includes much of Springfield, is shaping up to be far different than some Democrats — like U.S. Sen. DICK DURBIN, D-Ill. — had hoped.

With Jay Hoffman, James Gray & Greene County State’s Attorney Matt Goetten dropping out of the Democratic Primary in the 13th District (which the Cook Political Report ranks as a D+1 district),  David Gill is the consensus Democrat running against Tim Johnson, who pollster PPP (the nation’s most accurate pollster)  has just found to be - by far -  the most endangered Republican incumbent in the country right now.

Bloomington- Macon County Democratic Committeemen, including Macon County labor leaders, unanimously endorsed David Gill’s candidacy for Congress in Illinois’ 13th District last night. The vote was 50-0, with a weighted voted of the committeemen of greater than 3000-0.


The first Democrat has announced plans to challenge U.S. Rep. Tim Johnson in his new district, and the two candidates are quite familiar with each other.

"The people of the First District can see where that budget impacts their lives. Their bridges start to crumble. We've got 16 bridges on federal highways alone in the district that have been declared structurally deficientm and that doesn't include county and local municipal bridges.

    Typically during an election cycle, it often comes down to voting for the lesser of two evils. You choose the one who supports the issues most meaningful to you – or at least doesn’t outright defy them. It can be difficult to encounter a candidate who personifies the conviction and integrity you would imagine only in a perfect political world.
