The Daily Illini reported:

The map has received criticism from Republicans in Illinois as a form of gerrymandering or altering a state congressional map in order to favor one political party over the other.

“The state government has redrawn the district lines, and depending on which side of the aisle you sit on, you may be really pleased or displeased with the way that those lines have been drawn,” said Thomas J. Rudolph, professor in LAS. “Redistricting has always been a really controversial issue, and Illinois is no exception to that.”

Sources have confirmed that Diante Johnson’s exploration for the seat could foretell a Republican victory for the contentious gerrymandered seat.
