Potential Kinzinger Challenger Turns In Needed Signatures

Posted by wlpo on June 5, 2012

An Ottawa woman looks like she’s done all that’s required of her to run for Congress.

Democrat Wanda Rohl turned in well more than the 600 signatures needed to be on the November ballot.  Last month, she received unanimous support from county chairpersons in the 16th Congressional District.

Rohl admits she doesn’t have political experience but thinks she can overcome that against incumbent Republican Adam Kinzinger.  She was injured in an ATV crash nine years ago which has left her paraplegic.  She says safety net programs like Medicare and Medicaid helped keep her alive and keeping these programs funded is one of her top issues.
