The radical left has ended an era. Since 1983, a Lipinski has represented Illinois’ 3rd Congressional District, a collection of southwest suburbs and Chicago’s Southwest Side. William Lipinski served in Congress until 2005. He was succeeded by his son, Dan, who took over the seat.
Since 1983, a Lipinski has represented Illinois’ 3rd Congressional District, a collection of southwest suburbs and Chicago’s Southwest Side. William Lipinski served in Congress until 2005, then engineered the appointment of his son, Dan, to take over the seat.
Marie Newman, who fell short of unseating Lipinski in 2018, was backed by pro-abortion and “progressive” forces eager to take down the moderate Lipinski, who compiled a pro-life, pro-Israel, and pro-market record over the last fifteen years representing the southwest side of Chicago and nearby suburbs.
Bernie Sanders will not be the Democrat Party nominee, but his base is not going away. That was proven in Chicago on Tuesday, as another longtime moderate Democrat was primaried. Marie Newman was backed by the radical Left-wing group Justice Democrats, who played a prominent role in AOC’s take down of Joe Crowley.
The Justice Democrats will be backing other far-Left candidates in future primaries. They are working diligently to take down moderates such as Rep. Eliot Engel (D-N.Y.), and Rep. Richie Neal (D-Mass.) and Rep. Lacy Clay (D-Mo.) in the coming months. The far-Left is clearly engaged in a hostile takeover of the Democrat Party, and that should seriously trouble every rational American.
Rep. Dan Lipinski falls in Democratic primary
By Politico, March 19th, 2020:
Rep. Dan Lipinski, a Chicago congressman known for his staunch opposition to abortion and his votes against Obamacare and same-sex marriage, finally succumbed to a liberal challenger Tuesday in a primary held in the throes of the burgeoning coronavirus pandemic.
The eight-term Illinois Democrat fell to businesswoman Marie Newman, who led 47 to 45 percent with nearly all the votes tallied, a resounding victory for the party’s progressive wing, which has struggled so far this year to capitalize on its 2018 success.
“I am bursting with pride and gratitude for the amazing coalition that helped bring about much needed change in our district,” Newman wrote in a late-night tweet. She canceled her election-night party as the number of coronavirus cases surged.
Newman, who came within 2,200 votes of ousting Lipinski in 2018, crafted a formidable and well-funded campaign operation for the rematch. Her turnout operation knocked over 100,000 doors and she nabbed early endorsements from nearly every high-profile progressive, including Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) and Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.).
That support helped Newman tap a groundswell of grassroots donors from around the country. She raised upwards of $1.6 million and was outspending Lipinski by a two-to-one margin on the air.
A coalition of women’s groups, including EMILY’s List and NARAL Pro-Choice, funneled $1 million into TV ads to help Newman, but Lipinski was left to fend for himself on the airwaves, a dynamic that made his team nervous heading into the election.
In a statement Tuesday night, NARAL President Ilyse Hogue hailed the victory as a “culmination of years of work to unseat an entrenched incumbent.”
