IL-13 (D)
Current office holder: Rodney Davis (R)
A Springfield native, Betsy is a long-time supporter of women's rights and has worked to elect female candidates for state and local office through the organization she co-founded, Women Rising. In 2009, her son suffered a severe injury that left him in a coma for days. Betsy was inspired to run after the introduction of President Trump's health care bill, as she firmly believes that all people should have access to the same affordable health care that saved her son's life.
