Daily Herald, Chicago Tribune endorse Roskam for Congress
U.S. Rep. Peter Roskam, running for re-election for the 6th Congressional District seat he has held since 2007, was recently endorsed by the Daily Herald and Chicago Tribune newspapers.
“Roskam's record offers a reassuring assessment of his inclination to act as a check on the president's more troubling impulses and of the role he can play as a collaborative lawmaker,” the Daily Herald’s editorial board stated in a press release.
The Chicago Tribune hailed Roskam as a “fiscal conservative” instrumental in creating Trump’s tax overhaul and said he was unwilling to “simply shout down the opposing party’s ideas.”
Roskam is facing Democrat Sean Casten, a green-energy entrepreneur, in the November general election.
“I’m honored to earn the endorsement of both the Daily Herald and the Chicago Tribune,” Roskam said in the press release. “I believe that civility is lacking in our public discourse, and I’m deeply committed to working with both Republicans and Democrats to advance solutions, not exchange insults.”
The 6th U.S. Congressional District includes Crystal Lake, Darien, Elgin, Naperville, Oakbrook Terrace, Rolling Meadows, St. Charles, Warrenville, West Chicago and Wheaton.
