House Ag Member Davis Loses Primary Election

A familiar face on the House Agriculture Committee lost in a primary election this week. Illinois Republican Representative Rodney Davis lost his reelection bid to Trump-backed Representative Mary Miller. Davis had represented Illinois’ 13th Congressional District since 2013, and Miller had represented the 15th Congressional District since 2021. The districts were merged during a redistricting effort following the 2020 Census results and includes 35 central Illinois counties. The 52-year-old Davis served five terms representing the 13th District. Miller will face Democrat Paul Lange in the November general election. Former President Donald Trump held a campaign rally with Miller last weekend in Quincy, Illinois. In a statement, Davis says, “I’m proud of the work our team has done for our constituents since 2013,” adding, “We have delivered countless conservative policy solutions from historic tax cuts, student loan relief, farm programs, and investing in our transportation system.” Davis was endorsed by the Illinois Farm Bureau.
