Sauk Valley – Kinzinger to seek re-election

U.S. Rep. Adam Kinzinger, R-Channahon, plans to seek re-election to the 16th Congressional District, he said in a news release Wednesday.

"I want to fight for my constituents, fight for our values, and fight for future generations’ chance at the American Dream," Kinzinger said in the release.

“During my time in Congress, we’ve made great strides to get our country on a path toward prosperity, but I know more can be done. Combating the opioid problem that plagues our communities is a priority.

"We have a military readiness crisis that needs to be resolved. We also need greater deregulation to remove big government’s red tape to help our farmers and manufacturers thrive. With tax reform on the horizon, we can grow the economy, create more jobs, and provide tax relief for middle class families and small business owners," he said.

“We have a lot to look forward to, and I’m confident we can accomplish big things for the good of our community and our country."
