Candidates seeking Illinois's 18th Congressional District seat vacated by Aaron Schock reiterated their positions during a second debate this week.
State Senator Darin LaHood and Rob Mellon also talked about campaign finance reform.
Mellon, a Democrat from Quincy, says the way districts are drawn helped LaHood raise $1.5 million in campaign donations.
“And so they create these very safe districts, and they’re money making schemes,” Mellon said.
That charge was dismissed by LaHood, a Peoria Republican.
