Democrats can’t catch a break in IL-17

May 11, 2022

New polling shows Democrat primary candidates are struggling to gain name recognition from their party’s base in Illinois’ 17th district.

This follows Democrats’ failure to find candidates in the district who excite donors and can raise the resources necessary to compete.

NRCC Comment: “Democrats are struggling to gain a foothold in Illinois’ 17th district because Illinois voters know Democrats are to blame for their hardships.” – NRCC Spokeswoman Courtney Parella
