Issued the following announcement on Feb. 16.
Stephen Moore, former senior economic advisor to President Trump and Senior Economic Contributor to FreedomWorks has formally endorsed Jeanne Ives for Congress in Illinois’ Sixth District.
“Jeanne Ives is a staunch advocate of free-market, pro-growth, limited-government policies and she would be a star in Congress representing the sixth district of Illinois. She will be a crusader for lower taxes and other policies that put America first.
“In Springfield, Ives took on the liberal policies of the Democrats. This is one of the most important congressional races of 2020 and it is CRITICAL that Republicans win back this seat. I am proud to endorse Jeanne to bring an end to the madness that seized Congress in 2018.”
In formally endorsing Ives, Moore joins The Chicago Tribune, Republican National Committeewoman Demetra Demonte, Cook County Republican Party Chair Sean Morrison, Lake County Republican Party (chaired by ILGOP Co-Chair Mark Shaw), Lyons Township Republicans, Palatine Township Republicans, United Hellenic Voters of America, Club for Growth, the House Freedom Caucus, FreedomWorks, Susan B. Anthony List and Former IL-06 Congressman Peter Roskam.
Rich Porter, Illinois Republican National Committeeman has also thrown support behind Ives in her 2020 race. And the entire Illinois’ Republican Congressional Delegation were recently joined by House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy in hosting a fundraiser for Ives in Washington DC.
