For Immediate Release
Crystal Lake, IL – State Representative Allen Skillicorn (R-Crystal Lake) today is formally endorsing State Sen. Jim Oberweis for Congress in the 14th District and is urging 14th District voters to rally around a true conservative who has a proven record of standing up for taxpayers.
“It is no secret that one of the issues I am most passionate about is taxes,” Skillicorn said. “From Day One in the State Legislature, I have been a consistent opponent to tax increases. The one member in the State Senate with a similar record of opposition to taxes is Jim Oberweis. Lauren Underwood will do nothing but vote for tax increases. Jim Oberweis will stand up for taxpayers.”
Skillicorn said Oberweis also will be an advocate for strong border security.
“The open border policies being pushed by team Nancy Pelosi/Lauren Underwood are putting our nation at risk,” Skillicorn said. “I have every confidence that Jim Oberweis will be the leader we need on border security.”
Sen. Oberweis said he is honored to have Skillicorn’s support.
“I am honored and humbled to have a conservative champion like Allen Skillicorn supporting me for Congress,” Oberweis said. “It means a great deal to me to have his support because Allen has become a strong voice for conservative ideas and conservative values. His support speaks volumes. It sends a message that I am the conservative leader voters can trust and I am the conservative who can beat the Pelosi/Underwood team.
