"A Model for Others," Schneider Endorsed By Papers for Bipartisan Work



HIGHLAND PARK, IL – The Chicago Tribune and The Daily Herald endorsed Brad Schneider, each citing his bipartisanship and dedication to the Tenth District. The papers commended Brad’s work with the Problem Solvers Caucus, his dedication to protecting constituents from known carcinogens, and his role supporting the Highland Park community after the July 4th shooting. Brad will continue to campaign on protecting the healthcare of Illinois families, getting costs down, fighting for common sense gun violence prevention, and defending women's health care freedom.

Daily Herald:  “We long have appreciated U.S. Rep. Brad Schneider's spirit of bipartisanship. We have recognized in particular how well that spirit meshes with the centrist independence of Illinois' 10th Congressional District. The Highland Park Democrat's work in Washington continues to demonstrate that kind of politics, despite the bitter polarization of our times. In fact, his performance ranks as the most bipartisan of the suburban Chicago Congressional delegation... Schneider's candidacy has much more to speak for it. Now eight years into his congressional career, Schneider is emerging as an important player in the U.S. House. He is a member of the powerful House Ways and Means Committee. He also is an expert participant on the Committee on Foreign Affairs, which provides him with an important voice on issues dealing with Ukraine, Russia, Europe and the Middle East as well as matters such as climate change and cybersecurity. At the same time, we cannot express strongly enough our appreciation for the sensitive and reassuring role he played in comforting and proactively supporting the Highland Park community after the senseless mass shooting on July 4. In that light, Schneider has long believed the sale of military-style assault weapons should be banned and he has worked toward that in Congress... a model for others.”

Chicago Tribune: Brad Schneider “has served four terms and taken pains to work both sides of the aisle. Since 2017, he has been a member of Congress’ Problem Solvers Caucus, a group of roughly 50 moderate Republicans and Democrat lawmakers who tout compromise and bipartisanship. Schneider was one of several lawmakers who pushed for federal regulators to take action against plants — two of which were in Lake County — that were emitting cancer-causing ethylene oxide into the air.”
