The following news release was issued by Darlene Senger's campaign. State Rep. Senger, R-Naperville, is running for the seat now held by U.S. Rep. Bill Foster, D-Naperville:
U.S. Rep. Randy Hultgren, R-Winfield, endorsed Darlene Senger for Congress and cited Senger’s leadership in bringing bold solutions forward to address Illinois’ fiscal condition as a key reason for his support.
“Darlene Senger doesn’t run from challenges, she runs toward them,” said Hultgren. “Darlene’s work to hold the line on taxes, rein in Democrat over-spending and bring bold solutions to help stabilize Illinois’ pension system makes her the right person to represent the 11th District in Congress.”
“Darlene Senger is running at the right time for the right reasons. I know Darlene and we would be a strong team that can bring solutions and real reform to Washington. That’s why I’m endorsing her and giving her my full support,” said Hultgren.
