SPRINGFIELD, Illinois — Rep. Rodney Davis raked in key endorsements from state and national business groups ahead of his June 28 primary against fellow GOP Rep. Mary Miller in Illinois’s newly redrawn 15th Congressional District.
Davis, first elected to the House in 2012, is in a heated battle with Miller, a Trump-endorsed firebrand freshman who has been involved in a string of controversies since first taking office. The pair were effectively forced to run against each other due to the Democratic-controlled redistricting process in Illinois, which, starting in January 2023, will have its House delegation drop from 18 to 17 seats due to population loss in the state during the decade before the 2020 census.
Davis this week won the endorsements of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and Illinois Chamber of Commerce. On Monday, Davis huddled with business leaders at the Mel-O-Cream Donuts International in Springfield, the state capital.
