District 1st District

Jonathan L. Jackson (D)

“I am ready to serve on Day One – I have fought passionately for social justice and equality and some of the same issues legislated by Congress.”

Eric Carlson (R)

“Conservative policies regarding economics, school choice, border security, and foreign policy are the way forward. But first, we must rid ourselves of the negativity of career politicians who have caused much of our current problems.”

District 2nd District

Robin Kelly (D) - Incumbent

“I am passionate about combating gun violence and passing common-sense gun safety legislation. I had the honor of presiding over Congress as Speaker Pro-Tem when we passed critical gun violence prevention legislation dealing with background checks.”

Thomas Lynch (R)

“I’m a normal American like most of you. I have a job, I pay taxes, and I’m not the smartest man in every room I enter. But all of us saw a future with high gas prices and inflation when President Biden was elected. Washington didn’t.”

District 3rd District

Delia Ramirez (D)

“As Roe vs. Wade is threatened, I am the only candidate in this race whose rights are being threatened and I protect reproductive rights in Congress as I have done so here in Illinois through legislation.”

Justin Burau (R)

District 4th District

Jesús “Chuy” García (D) - Incumbent

“As an immigrant, I’m fighting for a pathway to citizenship and dignity for all 11 million living in the shadows. As a husband, father, and grandfather, I stand in my conviction that women alone have the right to choose their futures. Roe v. Wade must remain the law of the land.”

James Falakos (R)

"I have a strong background in small business, and I was put to work at a very young age. I learned the value of hard work and no job is too low or too high for me."

Edward Hershey (WCP)

"I have seen how the city refuses to educate more and more of our youth – closing schools, starving them of funds, all while handing big payouts to companies and developers."

District 5th District

Mike Quigley (D) - Incumbent

"I’m poised to serve as the highest-ranking Democrat on the Appropriations Subcommittee on Transportation, Housing, and Urban Development where I will ensure that our city gets the funding it needs." 

Tommy Hanson (R)

“Inflation is causing significant price increases at the grocery store, gas prices are soaring, fixed incomes aren't rising and wages aren't keeping up with the rising costs and people in Illinois are reaching a breaking point.”

“Politicians like Marie Newman, Sean Casten, Nancy Pelosi, and Kim Foxx have put special interests, party politics, and extreme far-left agendas ahead of doing what’s best for the people they’re supposed to represent.”

District 7th District

Danny K. Davis (D) - Incumbent

District 8th District

Raja Krishnamoorthi (D) - Incumbent

“I’m leading the effort in Congress to hold accountable companies that are hiking prices on everyday consumer goods, from gas to groceries. I’m also leading the charge to ban Members of Congress from trading individual stocks to end insider trading in Congress once and for all.”

Chris Dargis (R)

“Today we face significant challenges in our country and around the globe, but we also have a clear opportunity to make a change for the better.”

Nikki Budzinski (D)

"In Congress, fighting inflation will be my number one priority on day one. Working people in Central and Southern Illinois are hurting, and they need real relief right now. I will fight for a child tax cut for working families."

District 14th District

Lauren Underwood (D) - Incumbent

“There’s no time quite like a global pandemic to highlight how important it is to have access to quality and affordable health care. That’s why I wrote the Health Care Affordability Act which was signed into law and lowers health care premiums saving families an average of $2,400 a year.”

Scott R. Gryder (R)

District 15th District

Paul J. Lange (D)

“I believe the People of the 15th IL Congressional District should determine their future not a small group of rioters as witnessed on January 6th 2021. The economy should be an opportunity for all the People not a select few.”
