Republican Bobby Schilling received a significant endorsement in his push to win the GOP Primary in District 2. Schilling, a former congressman from Illinois, is one of a handful of Republicans running for the nomination.
He announced today that Congressman Jim Jordan has endorsed his candidacy.
“Now more than ever it is vital to get reinforcements in Congress to help defend President Trump, and promote our conservative solutions to the challenges our country faces,” Jordan said. “We need Bobby Schilling back in Congress working with us again.”
Schilling said he appreciates the support from Jordan.
“Jim is one of the best conservatives we have in Congress — someone who President Trump has repeatedly counted on during his time in Washington,” Schilling said. “Getting his endorsement means the world to me. I look forward to joining him in the Freedom Caucus next year.”
Jordan was one of President Donald Trump’s biggest defenders during the impeachment hearings in Congress.
