SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (WMBD) — Republican incumbent Congressman Rodney Davis (R-Taylorville) and Democratic challenger Betsy Dirksen Londrigan (D-Springfield) faced off in a debate Monday evening at the WCIA-TV studios in Springfield.

They discussed issues facing Illinois’ 13th Congressional District. The coverage began at 7 p.m. Monday.

Both candidates submitted to temperature screenings and debated from a safe distance in an effort to adhere to CDC guidelines.

It was their first debate since Davis won a close race by just about 2,000 votes in 2018. In that race, Dirksen Londrigan hammered him for his votes on the Affordable Care Act.
