Ives responds to anti-Trump protesters harassing Congress members



SCHAUMBURG – After meeting with Illinois manufacturers Friday morning, Republican Congressional candidate Jeanne Ives responded to reports that anti-Trump protesters surrounded and verbally assaulted Congress members as they were leaving the White House grounds Thursday night.
