Esther Joy King today released this statement after winning the Republican nomination for the 17th Congressional District of Illinois.
“Thank you, thank you to all of the voters who made tonight possible. I am blown away by the amount of support we’ve received. It is truly the honor of my lifetime to run to represent the people of this congressional district, but it’s not over yet. We have a major fight ahead of us–a fight to ensure people can fill their gas tanks and grocery carts without dipping into their rent money or retirement savings. It doesn’t have to be a choice if we elect leaders who will put their constituents first rather than far-left, out-of-touch policies and that’s exactly what I’m running to do. Let’s come together to win this in November.”
Eric Sorensen, a Democrat and former meteorologist from Rockford posted on his facebook, “The votes have been counted and it’s official – THANK YOU to everyone who was a part of this movement. From the first day, this campaign has been built on three pillars: trust, science, and communication. Talking with voters across the district, they agree, we need more science and less politics in their next representative.”
The 17th District includes parts of Peoria, Bloomington-Normal, Macomb, the Quad Cities, Rockford, and most of the northwest corner of the state.
