HMP Statement Congratulating the Winners of the IL Democratic Primaries

March 21, 2018

WASHINGTON, DC – House Majority PAC Executive Director Charlie Kelly issued the following statement congratulating the winners of last night’s Democratic primaries in Illinois: 

Congratulations to the terrific Democratic Congressional candidates across Illinois including Sean Casten (IL-06), Brendan Kelly (IL-12), Betsy Dirksen Londrigan (IL-13), and Lauren Underwood (IL-14) for winning the nomination in their districts. Voters across Illinois sent a strong message that they’re ready for new leadership in Congress. These are top-notch candidates – running on an economic agenda that lifts up the middle class. Their platforms offer a real choice against their Republican opponents who each have a long record of lining up behind Paul Ryan and his toxic agenda. These strong candidates are further proof that Democrats have many great pick-up opportunities in Illinois and across the country this November.”
