Dennis Anderson, Democratic Candidate for U.S. Congress in IL-14, Wins Primary Election

Dennis Anderson, Democratic Candidate for U.S. Congress in IL-14, Wins Primary Election

Huntley,IL., March 18, 2014 -- Tonight Dennis Anderson earned a commanding victory in Illinois’ 14th Congressional District Democratic Primary, giving his campaign strong momentum into the General Election in November.

At an election event in Huntley, Anderson thanked an enthusiastic group of voters for their strong support of his candidacy.  Anderson will face incumbent Randy Hultgren in November.

“I am honored to represent my party in this year’s general election.  For too long Randy Hultgren has served the special interest and extreme ideologues that have paralyzed Washington and ignored the needs of hard-working Americans,” said Anderson. 

“Starting tonight, we’re going to make sure people in the 14th District know they have a choice in November’s election.  My campaign and I will work hard to reach out to voters.  Unlike my opponent, I will hold town halls and listen to your ideas and concerns.

“Hultgren is a proud member of the ‘suicide caucus’ that opted to shut down the government and threaten default on our debt rather than compromise with anyone.  I will work with all of my colleagues to find common ground and produce results.

“Hultgren offers an extreme ideology that drives him to support defunding  Planned Parenthood but spend half a billion on ‘abstinence-only education’.  His Swaps Regulatory Improvement Act – which would weaken financial regulations – was 85 lines long.  75 of those lines were written by Citigroup.  My values are much more in line with the people in our communities.

“Hultgren would rather toe the Tea Party line than raise the minimum wage or extend unemployment benefits,  ignoring our families’ economic challenges. My highest priority is to make sure our economy works for small businesses and middle class families who just want a fair shot at prosperity.  Randy Hultgren has let us down for far too long, and I will be the voice in Washington that our families deserve.”
