The race for the new Illinois 13th US Congressional District is heating up. In a recent poll taken by Victoria Research Democrat and Bloomington native Dr. David Gill currently leads with 40%, Republican and Taylorville native Rodney Davis is at 39% and Independent and Edwardsville Native John Hartman has 8%.
Davis says that there are some big differences between Gill and himself.
Gill says that he thinks this election will come down to him not taking money from big corporations like his opponent Davis.
Davis says that he believes that this is a very important election because of all the recent job loss in Illinois.
Gill says that he believes this election is important because there are people in Washington DC that do not care about the public interest.
The candidates will be holding a debate at Illinois State University next Wednesday at 6 pm in the Brown Ballroom of the Boone Student Center in Normal, IL.
