IDCCA President Mark Guethle released the following statement:

“Democrats know that our best chance at a Democratic majority in the U.S. House of Representatives runs through Illinois. National Republicans believe that they can take back a seat or two in Illinois. We’re not going to let that happen. It’s vitally important that our candidates come through the Primary Election strong and ready to take on the MAGA controlled GOP. Anything else puts our democracy at risk.”

The Illinois Primary Election is on Tuesday, March 19.
