SPRINGFIELD - Illinois House Republicans are reacting after Governor JB Pritzker signed new legislative redistricting maps into law.
House Leader Jim Durkin (R-82nd District) issued a statement on Friday calling out the Governor...
"JB Pritzker promised to veto any maps drawn by legislators or politicians. Today, Governor Pritzker broke that promise, even though yesterday he told reporters he was undecided and hadn't reviewed the maps.
Governor Pritzker, you sold out. You sold out independence. You sold out Republicans. You sold out Democrats to the partisan Democrat machine, which has destroyed Illinois. But not only did you sell out, you lied."
The new Illinois House map, which can be viewed below, will divide our local area into three separate districts; 115, 116, 117, and 118.
