The 2012 United States House of Representatives elections in Illinois were held on Tuesday, November 6, 2012 to elect the 18 U.S. Representatives from the state, one from each of the state's 18 congressional districts, a loss of one seat following the 2010 United States Census. The elections coincided with the elections of other federal and state offices, including a quadrennial presidential election. Primary elections were held on March 20, 2012.[1]

Redistricting

A redistricting bill was introduced to the Illinois General Assembly by members of the Democratic Party in May 2011. Although Representatives are not required to live within their districts, the new map drew the homes of at least five Republican incumbents into districts where they would have to run against other Republicans, and others into districts which strongly favor Democrats.

After an amendment which modified the 13th and 15th districts was passed with Republican support,[2][3] the new map was passed by the Illinois House of Representatives on May 30, 2011[4] and the Senate on May 31.[5]Governor Pat Quinn, a Democrat, signed the map into law on June 24. Republican members of the congressional delegation planned to mount a legal challenge.[6]

The new 2nd district stretches from Kankakee County, through Will County and to Chicago.[14] Democrat Jesse Jackson, Jr., who had represented the 2nd district since 1999, sought re-election.[9]

Jesse Jackson, Jr. resigned his seat in the 112th Congress on November 21, 2012, and also resigned his seat in the 113th Congress on the same day.

Democratic primary

Miller ended his campaign in February 2012 and endorsed Harriman (but remained on the primary ballot).[55]

In May 2012, however, Harriman dropped out of the race because of an illness; that left the decision of whom to name as a replacement candidate up to a committee that included the 12 Democratic county chairmen in the district and Rep. Costello.[56] The committee unanimously selected Major General (ret.) and Adjutant General of Illinois William Enyart as the replacement nominee on June 23.[57][58]

The 17th district, based in Rock Island and Moline, was extended to include most of Rockford and the more Democratic areas of Peoria and Tazewell County, thereby making it more favorable to Democrats.[85] Republican Bobby Schilling, who had represented the district since January 2011, ran for re-election.[86]

Attorney Eric Reyes, who had announced he would seek the Democratic nomination,[87] ran as an independent candidate.[88]

Democratic gain from Republican

District 18

Republican Aaron Schock, who had represented the 18th district since 2009, ran for and won re-election. The district was one of two which were expected to remain strongly favorable to Republicans.[26] Peoria's more Democratic southern portion was shifted to the 17th District, and was replaced by the heavily Republican Bloomington-Normal and Quincy areas.[85]

Republican primary

Darrel Miller, a farmer, had planned to challenge Schock in the Republican primary,[92] but was removed from the ballot by the Illinois Board of Elections in February 2012.[93]
