Longtime Congressman Picks Manzullo

Posted by wlpo on March 19, 2012

Six-term Congressman Tim Johnson has endorsed fellow Republican Congressman Don Manzullo in his primary bid
against Adam Kinzinger.

Their primary battle is one of the most intense in Tuesday’s primary election. A new congressional map drawn by Democrats put much of Kinzinger’s old district into Manzullo’s, forcing an incumbent runoff. The new 16th District curves through north-central Illinois from the Wisconsin border to the Indiana state line.

In the endorsement, Johnson cites Manzullo’s fiscal conservatism and family values. Johnson is from Urbana.
