PEORIA — Illinois Congressional voting district 17 residents will support Congressional candidate Cheri Bustos at WTVP Studio at 101 State St. in Peoria Oct. 25 at 6 p.m. as she debates with opponent Bobby Schilling.
Residents will rally to say 'No' to the man who has allowed good jobs to be shipped overseas devastating an entire community in Freeport.
“Schilling is allowing Bain Capital, a company founded under Mitt Romney, to ship middle class jobs to a foreign country on his watch,” Deborah Johnson said.
"This shows me that Shilling is spineless and will not speak up for his constituents when it really matters. We need someone like Cheri Bustos, a woman who will guard her district like a mama bear. We need a champion in D.C., and not an obstructionist like Shilling.”
For months, constituents of Rep. Bobby Schilling have asked him to back an economy that works for everyone. But he supports a "Romney Economy," which includes extending tax cuts for the wealthy that began under George W. Bush's leadership. Cheri Bustos promises to protect Medicare, Social Security, and create more middle class jobs.
