McConchie: Redistricting failure a sad day for voting rights in Illinois

Despite criticism from Republicans, good government groups, and community organizations, Illinois Democrats rushed to pass new, adjusted legislative maps in a one-day special session, after their originals were found to be unconstitutional. Senate Republican Leader Dan McConchie issued the below statement immediately following the vote:

“This is a sad day for everyone who has fought for voting rights in Illinois,” said Illinois Senate Republican Leader Dan McConchie (R-Hawthorn Woods). “The Democratic Majority has abandoned their neighbors and the communities they represent in their quest to consolidate power at all costs. It is now entirely up to Gov. Pritzker to veto this politician-drawn map and right this incredible wrong they have done to the people of Illinois.”
