Rockford Army Veteran ready to challenge Kinzinger

Posted by wlpo on July 19, 2015

     If 16th District Congressman Adam Kinzinger decides to run for his seat again, there’s a challenger waiting. According to a Northern Illinois Tea Party blog, Colin McGroarty is entering the Primary with hopes of eventually going to Washington. McGroarty is a Rockford technology consultant and Army Veteran.

     The former paratrooper says he wants to run a campaign that won’t succumb to the interests of “Big Money”. McGroarty sees Kinzinger as interested in going to war with Syria while McGroarty wants to get the U.S. out of foreign entanglements. He says Kinzinger is a key ally to the U. S. Chamber of Commerce’s support of amnesty.

    Speculation is Kinzinger will run again…but, it’s possible the Illinois GOP might persuade U.S. Senator Mark Kirk to retire and Kinzinger become their Senate candidate.
