Sugar Grove, IL – Jim Oberweis, Republican candidate for Congress in the 14th District, is issuing the following statement on his victory in the Republican Primary:


This has been a spirited and well fought campaign. I have been disappointed in the negative tone that the campaign has taken, but all of that is behind us. Now is the time for us as Republicans to come together and finish the mission which is to defeat Lauren Underwood in November.


I thank everyone who came out and voted today, both Republicans and Democrats, as there are many public health concerns weighing heavily on people’s minds. I would also like to thank all of my volunteers, family and staff.


Finally, I thank the election judges, the county clerks and their staff who work hard every year to make our elections successful but particularly the work they did today under very stressful conditions with all of the coronavirus concerns. Thanks to all of them for their hard work.


Our country is in tumultuous times, and with Americans facing a great series of challenges in these coming weeks and months, I intend to make my case to the the voters of the 14th district that I am the candidate with the business and life experience we need in DC so our country fully recovers from this national crisis.
