Letter: Schneider is right candidate for Tenth District


We are almost two weeks from election day here in Illinois. It is essential that 10th District Democrats elect the right candidate for Congress. That candidate is Brad Schneider.

Schneider has reached out to hear and respond to constituents in every corner of the 10th Congressional District. While in Congress he demonstrated his commitment to fighting for progressive Democratic values and also showed a willingness to work respectfully with all of his colleagues on both sides of the aisle. In Congress he will hit the ground running. He has been and will again be an effective and responsive legislator. That is why so many of his former colleagues, like House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, Democratic Whip Steny Hoyer, Congresswoman Tammy Duckworth, Secretary Jesse White, and many more- have endorsed him and why I too believe he deserves your vote both in the primary and the general election.
