Vote Kennedy for governor

With Donald Trump in the White House and Bruce Rauner in the governor’s office, Democrats like me are looking for inspiring candidates capable winning and governing. 

I am enthusiastically supporting Democrat Chris Kennedy for governor in Illinois because I believe he can win, govern effectively, and make us all proud.

Agriculture is a top economic engine. Thirty years ago, Chris Kennedy moved to Decatur to work in the food and agriculture industry for Archer Daniels Midland.

Kennedy’s speech at the Rock Island County Democratic Party’s Labor Day picnic last year addressed the economic problem facing our state.

As the nephew of President John F. Kennedy and son of the late Robert Kennedy, Chris understands his family’s unique role in American government and politics. But when you meet him, you are struck by his down-to-earth, humble personality.

When you listen to him, you hear the same issues that the Kennedy family is known for. Chris Kennedy understands job creation. He knows that our public universities are economic engines in every region of the state.

Chris Kennedy will fight to restore the promise of the American dream to every region of Illinois, and I urge you to support him on March 20.
