* From US Rep. Peter Roskam’s campaign…
Madigan puppet Sean Casten pledged his full loyalty to the Illinois Speaker this week by entering into a new joint fundraising agreement with Mike Madigan and the Illinois Democratic Party to set up a K Street operation.
Casten for Congress and Mike Madigan joined forces to funnel more funding into the Casten campaign, signing the fundraising agreement on September 12, 2018. This should come as no surprise since earlier this year, Casten stood with Madigan in defiant opposition to a property tax freeze that would have protected Sixth District residents from the ever-growing, out-of-control property taxes imposed by Madigan and Illinois Democrats.
“Casten already mirrored all of Madigan’s views in raising taxes on Illinoisans and blocking bipartisanship, but now Casten has committed to accept Madigan’s money and do his bidding,” said Roskam for Congress Veronica Vera. “The last thing the Sixth District needs is a carbon copy of Mike Madigan representing them in Congress.”

This is rich coming from an ethically challenged Congressman like Peter Roskam who sits behind the desk of disgraced Congressman and child abuser Dennis Hastert. Peter Roskam can’t run on his own record, so he concocts these absurd attacks against his opponent - as pointed out by Crain’s and the Better Government Association. The Illinois Republican Party, Paul Ryan, the Koch Brothers, and numerous other beneficiaries of his $2 trillion deficit busting tax scam have all been helping Peter Roskam - and despite spending millions pushing false allegations against Sean, the truth is voters aren’t buying it.”
To date, four key political prognosticators like Cook Political Report, Inside Elections, Election Projection, and Larry Sabato all list this race a toss-up. And the New York Times latest public polling confirms that.
