In 2018, Marie Newman, with the endorsement and support of MoveOn members in this district, took on Representative Dan Lipinski, the Chicago machine, "No Labels," and Joe Lieberman—and came just 2,200 votes short of winning a historic upset. Since then, Newman has continued to build momentum and gain new supporters across the district—while Rep. Lipisnki has continued to align with anti-choice activists and vote against core Democratic Party policies. Voters in Illinois' 3rd district and other Democratic districts across the country are no longer willing to tolerate being represented by politicians who fail to support mainstream progressive policies. The DCCC is doing all it can to sabotage campaigns such as Newman's before they start, but they're out of touch with the millions of grassroots Democrats demanding real change from our Congress.
