Having lived in the district most of his life, Randy Hultgren has an accomplished record in both the public and private sectors, and his campaign is generating strong grassroots support throughout the district. His state senate seat covers the eastern portion of the 14th district, which he has represented since 2007 having previously served in the State House of Representatives. Randy has been consistently recognized by organizations such as the National Federation of Independent Businesses and Illinois Chamber of Commerce for his efforts to reduce taxes, healthcare costs and government waste in a fiscally responsible manner – skills we can all agree are much needed in Washington.
Over the past several weeks, independent political handicapper Stu Rothenberg has announced updates that highlight the competitiveness in Illinois. Despite Fosters’ 58-42% victory over Jim Oberwise in 2008, Rothenberg has rated IL-14 as “pure toss-up” and showed polling information that has the Democrat even with Randy. Republicans have the right candidate in place to reclaim this seat in November, when Foster will have to answer for his reckless voting record and complete disregard for the well-being of those in his district.
