Kinzinger begins his re-election campaign

Posted by wlpo on September 19, 2013

          The campaigning season has arrived for the congressman representing the Illinois Valley.  Republican Adam Kinzinger announced Thursday the start of his 2014 re-election campaign.  Kinzinger is in the midst of his second term representing the 16 th District in Washington D.C. 

          He was first elected to Congress after defeating Democrat Debbie Halvorson in 2011.  For his second term, Kinzinger had to defeat longtime Republican Congressman Don Manzullo in the primary because redistricting radically changed the boundaries of the 16th District.

          At least one person in the northern part of the district has hinted that they would like to challenge Kinzinger in a Republican primary.     

          The Primary Election is next March.  The General Election is next November.
