The 15th Congressional District of Illinois is located in eastern and southeastern Illinois. Republican John Shimkus represents the district.

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 won reelection again, after facing a primary challenge from Illinois State Senator Kyle McCarter with 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]
