Last Saturday afternoon, over 150 volunteers gathered in Illinois’ 16th District to learn how to unseat Republican Congressman Adam Kinzinger. After meeting at a venue, they walked neighbors knocking on doors in support of change and to register new voters.  Kinzinger has been under fire for supporting the impeachment of President Donald Trump. 

Tom McCullagh, a former state senate candidate, helped organize the event. He was joined on stage by Robert Cruz, who currently running for Oak Lawn School Board District 229 and will be making a candidate announcement on April 24th for another office.

Community organizer and activist Scott Presler,  who became famous in 2019 leading a clean up effort in Baltimore, was on hand to address the group. Pressler, who is a Trump supporter, got help on his community projects from hundreds of volunteers after his Tweet to clean up Baltimore went viral. He will be a featured speaker this week at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) in Orlando, Florida.

Presler said, “Many of the voters told me that they helped elect Kinzinger in previous elections, but are no longer supporting him.”  

Kinzinger is up to re-election in 2022. Illinois might lose one or two congressional seats on the next cycle due to a large population loss.

  1. It was an awesome event where it was discussed, we can’t rely on the IL GOP Chairs who have let us down before by not filling the ballots to challenge democrats , thus, handing seats back to democrats. I have been preaching this myself and I am running for a 2022 win!
