Addressing speculation on a bid for the U.S. 14th Congressional District, State Rep. Allen Skillicorn said in a statement if it means running for another position for Illinois families to have a voice and not a special interest to represent them, so be it.
The 14th district is currently represented by Democrat Lauren Underwood, who unseated Republican Randy Hultgren in November.
“I am 100 percent focused on saving Illinois from high taxes, a restrictive economic policies and Obamacare’s high costs that hurt all Illinoisans,” Skillicorn, R-East Dundee, said. “I will fight for Illinoisans in the state Capitol, Main Street, on farms and even Washington D.C.”
Skillicorn, who said the statement was something he wanted to make for any future releases, said he is listening to Illinois families in the counties of Lake, McHenry, Kane, DeKalb, Kendall, DuPage and Will – all of which make up the 14th Congressional District.
