Although rare, Illinois Democratic Reps. Jan Schakowsky and Luis Gutierrez are choosing to endorse Marie Newman, over Rep. Dan Lipinski, who is challenging him in the primaries.

Lipinski is one of the most conservative democrats in Congress. Newman’s views are allied with Schakowsky and Gutierrez, who are prominent members of the Democratic progressive wing.
