The newly drawn 13th Illinois congressional race, pitting Republican Rodney Davis against Democrat David Gill continues to heat up with both men claiming to have the momentum and the lead in the polls. Gill, who has run unsuccessfully for the seat once held by retired Republican Tim Johnson in the old 15th district, claims a nine point lead in a Democrat commissioned poll as both men battle for the Republican held seat. However, Rodney Davis' campaign says their latest poll shows Davis with a four point lead and that lead expands to eight points, according to Davis' poll of voters paying the most attention to the race. The new 13th district includes McLean County but the district extends south to near the St. Louis area. Davis also received the endorsement of several mayors in the district including Bloomington Mayor Steve Stockton.
