Illinois Rep. Dan Lipinski, one of the few remaining pro-life Democrats, lost to progressive challenger Marie Newman Tuesday night by two percentage points. 

While Lipinski was backed by pro-life Susan B. Anthony List, which launched a five-figure campaign to support the incumbent, Newman was backed by pro-abortion Emily’s List as well as Justice Democrats, which “helped make” Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. 

“This isn’t just a loss for one incumbent,” Justice Democrats said on Twitter. “It’s a defeat for machine politics and big corporate donors who want to stop our movement for ‘Medicare for all,’ a Green New Deal and reproductive rights.”

As many observed, Lipinski’s loss represents the Democratic Party’s slide leftward.  Source: Paul Broun for Congress
