Description“The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee reversed its previous position and is now supporting Rep. Dan Lipinski (D., Ill) in his reelection bid.

The DCCC had previously declined to endorse Lipinski, a socially conservative Democrat and member of the Blue Dog Coalition.

Lipinski, the seven-term incumbent, is facing pro-choice marketing consultant Marie Newman in the primary. Newman has been endorsed by abortion rights advocacy organizations like Emily's List, Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand's (D., NY) political action committee, along with Democratic Reps. Jan Schakowsky (Ill.) and Luis Guitierrez (Ill.).

Lipinski is pro-life, voted against the Affordable Care Act in 2010, was in favor of freezing funding for Planned Parenthood, and was one of six Democrats to support a ban on abortions after 20 weeks post-conception.

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D., Calif.) also announced her support for Lipinski last week.“
