The 5th congressional district of Illinois covers parts of Cook and DuPage counties, as of the 2011 redistricting which followed the 2010 census. All or parts of Chicago, Elmhurst, Elmwood Park, Franklin Park, Hinsdale, La Grange Park, Norridge, Northlake, River Grove, Schiller Park, and Oakbrook Terrace are included.[4]

It has been represented by Democrat Mike Quigley since a special election in April 2009.

History[edit]

The district was created as part of the 28th United States Congress, which first met on March 4, 1843; it was initially represented by Stephen A. Douglas, whose Kansas–Nebraska Act prompted the creation of the Republican Party. As of the most recent redistricting it includes part of Cook County, and was represented by Democrat Rahm Emanuel from January 2003 until he resigned on January 2, 2009, to become White House Chief of Staff. On April 8, 2009, Mike Quigley won a special election to fill the seat.[5]

George W. Bush received 33% of the vote in this district in 2004.[citation needed] The district has a Cook Partisan Voting Index score of D +20.[6] Despite its recent historical preference for Democrats, the district was represented by a Republican for two years after Dan Rostenkowski lost his seat because of the Congressional Post Office scandal. On a national level, the scandal helped prompt the Republican Revolution of 1994.

Emanuel's predecessor was Rod Blagojevich, who was elected Governor in 2002. Blagojevich was impeached, convicted, and removed from office by the Illinois legislature in 2009. He was convicted in 2010 of one count of lying to federal investigators.

Mike Quigley was challenged for the seat by Republican nominee David Ratowitz and Green Party nominee Matt Reichel in the 2010 congressional elections.
