Next’s Tuesday’s Primary Features Two Republican Incumbents in Newly Drawn District

With a week left for campaigning before Primary Election Day, the race for the 15th Congressional District remains hotly contested. Two Republicans are running for the job, both incumbents, as the new district maps are forcing them to face each other.

Rodney Davis of Taylorville has represented the 13th district since 2013, while Mary Miller of Oakland has served the 15th District since January 2, 2021. Davis says there are several differences between himself and his opponent.

“I am the only member of Congress who lives in this new 15th District. Secondly, I am never going to vote to defund our military like my opponent has. To me, that is the next squad attack on the laws and order in this country. They committed to defunding our police and now the squad and some Republicans who vote with the squad are committed to defunding our military. That’s not me.”

Davis says he is proud of his record of working with President Trump while he was in office. Trump has endorsed Miller in the race and will campaign for her at an event at the Adams County Fairgrounds in Quincy on Saturday.
