The 15th Congressional District of Illinois is located in eastern and southeastern Illinois. It is currently represented by Republican John Shimkus. On August 30, 2019, Shimkus announced that he would not seek re-election in 2020.

The district has a Cook PVI rating of R+21, making it the most Republican district in Illinois and one of the most Republican in the Midwest. There are almost no Democrats elected above the county level, and Donald Trump carried over 70% of the district's vote in his 2016 presidential bid.

2011 redistricting

The congressional district covers parts of Bond, Champaign, Ford and Madison counties, and all of Clark, Clay, Clinton, Coles, Crawford, Cumberland, Douglas, Edgar, Edwards, Effingham, Fayette, Gallatin, Hamilton, Hardin, Jasper, Johnson, Lawrence, Marion, Massac, Moultrie, Pope, Richland, Saline, Shelby, Vermilion, Wabash, Washington, Wayne and White counties. All or parts of Centralia, Charleston, Danville, Edwardsville, Effingham, Glen Carbon, Mattoon and Rantoul will be included.[4] The representatives for these districts were elected in the 2012 primary and general elections, and the boundaries became effective on January 5, 2013.

2012 election

Republican John Shimkus, previously representing the 19th district,[5] was on the 2012 ballot for the 15th congressional district.[6] Angela Michael, a retired nurse and pro-life activist,[7] ran on a single-issue pro-life Democratic ticket.[8]

2016 election

Shimkus faced no opposition in the general election, after facing a challenge in the Republican primary from Illinois State Senator Kyle McCarter, who Tea Party backing and funding from the Club for Growth.[9][10]

2018 election

Shimkus continues to loom large in the 15th, but finally faces credible (if not well-funded) Democratic opposition from a local teacher and former Obama campaign worker.[11]
