Roskam backs Senger for Congress
U.S. Rep. Peter Roskam, a Wheaton Republican, says he'll back state Rep. Darlene Senger of Naperville in her March 18 primary race to take on Democratic U.S. Rep. Bill Foster for Congress.
“Darlene Senger has been the voice for fiscal reform in Springfield and I know she will carry on the fight in Washington,” Roskam said in a statement.
She's also won backing from U.S. Rep. Randy Hultgren, a Winfield Republican.
Senger, though, hasn't raised campaign money at nearly the rate of Hinsdale businessman Bert Miller, owner of Naperville's Phoenix Closures. Miller raised about $261,000 in the last three months of 2013 compared to about $49,000 for Senger.
Private investigatory Ian Bayne of Aurora, Grundy County Board member Chris Balkema of Channahon and Craig Robbins of Lisle are also running for the 11th District GOP nomination.
