Rodney Davis talks life after Congress; calls Trump ‘a loser’
Rodney Davis spent ten years serving representing Illinois' 13th congressional district, a huge of part of Central Illinois from the Mississippi River east to Champaign County. The district was drawn that way to at least be competitive for Democrats, but Davis repeatedly fended off challenges. Then, when Illinois Democrats redrew the maps again before the 2022 elections, Davis found himself drawn into the 15th district. In a race that was expected to be a nail-biter, Donald Trump backed Republican Mary Miller ousted Davis by about 15 percentage points. The defeat came despite Davis running Trump’s Illinois campaign in 2020 and voting in line with Trump 88% of the time. Shortly after Davis left office, he took up a new job: lobbying. Cozen O’Connor Public Strategies has taken him on as its managing director.
