Illinois will join the equality club eventually; if not this year then next. The only other potential Midwest states would be Wisconsin, Michigan, & Ohio, but they've got constitutional amendments which would need to be overturned first.

We're looking at 20 states (max) by 2020, then back to the SCOTUS- hopefully a SCOTUS without Scalia and/or Kennedy.
