I have so much to be thankful for.
Today I filed with the Illinois State Board of Elections to run as a Republican candidate for the 11th Congressional District. I am thankful for the freedom we have in America to represent each other. I am thankful for the opportunity to run. But today, I am most thankful for the helpers. To receive votes, a candidate must be listed on the ballot, and to be listed on the ballot, a candidate must secure signatures. Many of the signatures I secured were secured by me knocking on doors, meeting people, and asking for support. But MOST of the signatures were secured by family, friends, and volunteers who believe in me. As I said, I have so much to be thankful for. Thank you!
So, what is the next step? There is a challenge period where anyone can review my petitions. After that, we will turn our attention to the primary on March 17th, 2020.* Once we clear the primary election, it will be on to the general election in November.
But that's down the way. We will have much more to talk about, but today is a day for thankfulness!
