Republican Congressman Wants To Keep Representing Illinois Valley

Posted by wlpo on December 16, 2011

Republican Congressman Adam Kinzinger says he’ll run for election in the new 16th District, a move which pits him against longtime incumbent Congressman Don Manzullo.

Kinzinger’s Thursday announcement comes the same day that a federal court upheld a new congressional map drawn by Democrats. Kinzinger’s says he chose the expanded 16th instead of his current 11th – which stretches south of Chicago to Bloomington – because it has more of his old district than any other.

Kinzinger’s new district covers all of La Salle, Bureau and Putnam counties.
