I’ve spent 20 years fighting Pelosi and Madigan, my opponent has spent his career supporting them.
I’ve never stopped fighting for our families.
Whether it’s creating a stronger economy and bringing our steel jobs back, reforming the VA to ensure better care for our veterans or fighting for fair trade and a level playing field.
I’ve never wavered.
And you can always count on me to do what’s right for all of Southern Illinois.
* Company spun off from business once tied to opioids gave $30K to Southern Illinois reps: U.S. Reps. Mike Bost, R-Murphysboro, Rodney Davis, R-Taylorville, and John Shimkus, R-Collinsville, were among the more than 600 recipients nationwide on both sides of the aisle that received money from AbbVie, which has contributed about $1.3 million to politicians during the 2017-18 election cycle. They’re being criticized for taking money from AbbVie amid the ongoing opioid crisis.
Nevermind that Brendan Kelly has never run for state or federal office before, has no association with Madigan and already said he won’t back Pelosi. Goes to show that Kelly is a really good candidate if the best argument they can throw at him is some generic guilt-by-association Democratic bogeyman name-dropping. Verdict: weak sauce.
