With incumbent Congressman Mark Kirk running for President Obama’s Senate seat, Republicans are well positioned to continue their thirty year hold on Illinois’ 10th Congressional District.
In February, Illinois Republicans chose small business owner Robert Dold to succeed Kirk in this district making up the northern suburbs of Chicago. A third-generation native of the Chicago suburbs, Dold’s credentials include a law degree from Indiana University and an MBA from Northwestern’s Kellogg School of Business. Bob runs and operates a small family business that was founded in 1860, and serves on several different boards and associations where he fights for business from the local to the federal level. He remains an active member of his local community—serving as Scoutmaster for the same troop where he became an Eagle Scout. Dold is the ideal candidate for Illinois’ 10th this fall. He is committed to fighting for job creation, energy independence, meaningful health care reform, fiscal discipline and accountability, and the safety of America and American citizens.
