Illinois's 17th District (IL - 17)
Updated: Aug 29, 2014
Voters should see that former-Congressman Bobby Schilling has the wrong priorities for Illinois.
- Schilling’s campaign is backed by the oil billionaire Koch Brothers because he voted for their agenda of tax cuts for big corporations and shipping more American jobs overseas.
- In fact, when Sensata Technologies announced plans to close its Freeport Illinois plant, leaving 170 workers jobless, Schilling walked out of a public meeting when workers asked him about his vote.
