Pro-life Illinois Democrat loses House seat

Pro-life Democratic Rep. Dan Lipinksi lost his seat in the House of Representatives after losing the primary election. The eight-term congressman failed to survive another challenge from Marie Newman, who he won against by just two points in 2018.

Newman was backed by Bernie Sanders, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), and several progressive groups, according to the Washington Examiner.

Lipinski's district includes Chicago's strongly-Democratic southwest side and sets Newman up for a win in the November general election.
