WASHINGTON--Illinois House Republicans are fund-raising here on Wednesday to bankroll their anticipated legal challenge to the proposed congressional remap drawn by Illinois Democrats designed to create districts the Republicans would have difficulty winning.
I've written about "The Committee for a Fair and Balanced Map," created last year to be the lead group to mount challenges to the Democratic map. The group recently sent a letter to Gov. Quinn urging him not to sign off on the new districts. Quinn has not signed yet. The committee is expected to file a federal lawsuit challenging the map.
The Wednesday fund-raiser is at the Capitol Hill Club and is hosted by prominent Illinois Republicans: former Speaker Denny Hastert, former Labor Secretary Lynn Martin and former Rep. Tom Ewing.
