* Steve Brown’s website is now up and running

My name is Steve Brown, and I’m committed to making your voice heard on Capitol Hill. Like you, I want to play an active role in making my community, state and country a safer, better place to raise my children, run my business, and forge a future filled with unlimited promise.

If you share my vision, I urge you to connect with me and help make it happen! Together, we can make a meaningful difference– for our families, our communities, and our country.

* There could very well be some sort of announcement tonight

Be there or be square.

  1. - very old soil - Thursday, Mar 26, 15 @ 1:52 pm:

    he’s got my vote!

  2. - Oswego Willy - Thursday, Mar 26, 15 @ 1:55 pm:

    I will not be attending tonight, but it would not be out of the ordinary to see me on Thursday evenings and Sunday afternoons with my clipboard, walk sheets, and literature…

  3. - A guy - Thursday, Mar 26, 15 @ 2:02 pm:

    OW, unless you’re getting petitions, lose the clipboard. Just slows you down man. People react better when you don’t have one.

    I’ll be right there with you (only elsewhere) Got 237 houses to hit this weekend.

  4. - Wordslinger - Thursday, Mar 26, 15 @ 2:09 pm:

    Brownie getting his “Bob Roberts” on.

  5. - james the intolerant - Thursday, Mar 26, 15 @ 2:14 pm:

    Some of the most fun I had at SIU was watching SIU baseball games on the hill. THey were a power in those days.

  6. - Anonymous - Thursday, Mar 26, 15 @ 2:15 pm:

    Could be an awesome nite at D H Browns. Steve’s announcement and Rich’s Birthday.

  7. - Oswego Willy - Thursday, Mar 26, 15 @ 2:48 pm:

    The toughest job in this canpaign has to be the Spokesman. How can s/he say even less than Steve Brown, and say less better than anything said?

  8. - Soccermom - Thursday, Mar 26, 15 @ 3:13 pm:

    There is no place to contribute on the website. Should we just post our credit card information here?

  9. - Nick Danger - Thursday, Mar 26, 15 @ 3:18 pm:

    The hill, brews, ‘Itch’ and the boys. Always made for a great spring afternoon and warm-up for a night at the Pinch.

  10. - Soccermom - Thursday, Mar 26, 15 @ 3:25 pm:

    Steve, can I pleeeeeeaase be your campaign spokesperson? THIS IS NOT A JOKE!!! I believe in good government! the American dream! and things! We would be a great team!!!!

  11. - Oswego Willy - Thursday, Mar 26, 15 @ 3:30 pm:

    If anybody could meet the expectations, - Soccermom - might be that person.

  12. - A guy - Thursday, Mar 26, 15 @ 3:49 pm:

    Can’t believe for a second that she’d really have to beg for this job. Playing hard to get with her just know…hard to get.

  13. - ??? - Thursday, Mar 26, 15 @ 3:58 pm:

    “And things!” LOL. Good one, Soccermom.

  14. - steve schnorf - Thursday, Mar 26, 15 @ 4:00 pm:

    I stand, and sometimes sit, in support of Brown’s, as always

  15. - Amalia - Thursday, Mar 26, 15 @ 4:04 pm:

    hilarious candidate pitch! would love to work for soccer mom……..

  16. - QCLib - Thursday, Mar 26, 15 @ 4:10 pm:

    A few weeks ago no one could have imagined we’d accomplish so much. For most of this campaign, we were far behind. We always knew our climb would be steep. But in record numbers, you came out and you spoke up for change. And with your voices and with your votes, you made it clear, that at moment, in this election, there is something happening in America.

    Steve Brown is what’s happening to America.

  17. - Soccermom - Thursday, Mar 26, 15 @ 4:16 pm:

    I am practicing…

    “Yes, the Congressman is aware that he is required to report all gifts, including gifts of private transportation. It is true that he made use of a privately owned sulky on a recent trip to his District, where he was working tirelessly to address the important needs of his constituents. However, it should be noted that the sulky in question was powered by a horse that was, in turn, powered by grass from the Congressman’s front yard. So the Congressman clearly contributed his fair share to any costs born by the sulky owner.

    “I spoke earlier to the Congressman, who is very disappointed that these questions have diverted attention away from the real needs of the hard-working men and women of the 18th District. He says he will have no further comment on this matter, apart from this: ‘If you had to deal with the media brain trust in DC every day, you’d be sulky too.’

    “Thank you.”

  18. - A guy - Thursday, Mar 26, 15 @ 4:31 pm:

    That’s fine Ma’am. But what color and theme are his office?

  19. - Hacksaw Jim - Thursday, Mar 26, 15 @ 4:34 pm:

    === OW, unless you’re getting petitions, lose the clipboard. Just slows you down man. People react better when you don’t have one. ===

    Then what do you use to take notes?

  20. - Oswego Willy - Thursday, Mar 26, 15 @ 4:40 pm:

    - Soccermom -,


  21. - Hawkeye in Illinois - Thursday, Mar 26, 15 @ 6:19 pm:

    Congressman Brown would bring his experience of three decades in the corridors of power in the Statehouse and Chicago City Hall to our nation’s Capitol and could really shake up DC and of course would accept no influence from er brown-nosing lobbyists. It appears he already is courting a small but influential minority –cigar smokers for Brown (chaired by Paul Lis?) What this country needs is a good $5 cigar!

  22. - Anonymous - Thursday, Mar 26, 15 @ 8:55 pm:

    Enjoy Illinois it’s a Grand Old Party

  23. - Kerfuffle - Friday, Mar 27, 15 @ 8:32 am:

    I have an idea for decorating Steve’s congressional office. We will do a Downton Springfield theme using salvaged furniture from the old Coney Island restaurant - complete with the molting moose head.

  24. - Oswego Willy - Friday, Mar 27, 15 @ 8:50 am:

    Wow, - QCLib -, that’s restaurant quality as well…

  25. - Anonymous - Friday, Mar 27, 15 @ 9:00 am:

    How many votes did pat Paulson get against Nixon?

  26. - Steve Brown - Friday, Mar 27, 15 @ 9:04 am:

    Quite an outpouring.

    My ‘69 Camaro is red so the office can stay “as is”.

    Most importantly, the Callahan Saluki Baseball Bash was a great success for both the team and the Prairie Capital Alumni Chapter. Much thanks for all who supported the event.

    A special thanks to Alex Preston and Dave Brown for the use of the bar and a variety of donated goods and services.
    Thanks to the birthday boy for his clever promotional twists.
    It has been a busy week. Too much spotlight so I think some college baseball in Peoria is in order.

  27. - ventihot - Friday, Mar 27, 15 @ 9:53 am:

    This seat belongs to Darrin La Hood. Who does Brown think he is trying to horn in on Darrin’s birthright?

  28. - Downstate GOP Faithless - Friday, Mar 27, 15 @ 10:31 am:
