FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: Adam Kinzinger Wins Big in IL-16 Re-Election
CHANNAHON, IL - Following the election results for the 16th Congressional District of Illinois, Adam Kinzinger released the following statement on his overwhelming re-election win:
“First and foremost, I want to say thank you. Thank you to everyone who voted and thank you for the opportunity to be your voice in Washington. I’m humbled by this overwhelming victory tonight and proudly accept this re-election as the U.S. House Representative for Illinois' 16th Congressional District. It's truly an honor and a privilege to serve my community and my country, and I'm ready to help move us forward--as a district and as a nation.
“There’s no question that 2020 has been a trying year between the coronavirus pandemic and the visceral election cycle. As your Congressman, I will continue to work with my colleagues on both sides of the aisle to put the immediate needs of American families first and ensure we hold bad actors like Communist China accountable for their reckless and dangerous actions that led to this deadly COVID-19 outbreak. I will also continue to encourage and engage in a more civil discourse across the board. As a society, we need to find a way to move forward with a greater appreciation for the freedoms we have here.
“Today, millions of Americans exercised their right to vote in a free and fair election. This is incredibly special—and it reminds us that our greatness as a nation stems from our freedom. No matter how you voted, you used your voice and exercised your constitutional right to vote for representation in government—something that billions of people around the world wish they could do.
“Tonight, when all the results come in and the winners are confirmed, let’s uphold the values of this great nation and our democracy by accepting the outcomes with respect for the process and the people who work so hard to facilitate our elections.
“Let’s remember that we live in the greatest country on Earth and we have the freedoms to disagree with one another openly and passionately. But we are stronger together, and we owe it to one another to tone down our angry rhetoric and respect the differences we have as we move forward from this election. We owe it to future generations to protect our democracy and restore civility with one another.”
