Letters to the Editor

The letter from Clare Duggan (June 15) in support of Marie Newman is so misleading that it demands a response.

The writer ridiculously touts Newman’s 13-percent win over a Republican in a district that has been represented by Democrats consistently since at least 1980 over Sean Casten’s win by 7 percent in a district that was gerrymandered to favor Republicans and held by Republicans for nearly 50 years.
