“My name is Darlene Senger and I’m here today to formally announce that I am a candidate for the United States House of Representatives.”
And with that, Naperville resident and State Rep. Darlene Senger has entered the race to represent the 11th district in the U.S. Congress.
Her focus will be on creating jobs, reducing government waste and protecting social security along with improving educational opportunities.
“I’m running for Congress because we need better and more jobs at home here. It’s only through doing the right things, which is smaller government, less taxes, and less regulation that we can do that.”
Senator Mike Connelly who has worked with Senger knows what she brings to the table.
“She brings a willingness to work with the other side, a willingness to take on the toughest issues, and she’s accessible, and her staff is responsible for constituent outreach. I think it’s a natural fit.”
Senger will be running against two other republicans in a primary: Grundy County Board Member, Chris Balkema, and Conservative talk show host, Ian Bayne. The winner will run against incumbent democrat Bill Foster.
