Our data team made a big discovery

John,   As you know, my team and I have been hard at work, along with countless volunteers, lawyers, data experts and others, fighting hard to make sure every LEGAL vote is counted in this critical 14th district race. In that effort, our data team has made an inte…

Today’s the day

John,   Today is the day – we are beginning our discovery recount effort, a big step in our effort to #stopthesteal and take on Nancy Pelosi and her desperate efforts to preserve her shrinking majority, and by extension her power, by saving Lauren Underwood’s seat.…

Every legal vote

John,   Yesterday afternoon my campaign formally initiated the process to begin a discovery recount. We are seeking a discovery recount in each of the seven counties within the 14th Congressional District. As I have promised you since day one, we are fighting hard …

We thought Halloween was over

John,   Halloween must have been extended, because we have just received data back for a whole host of scary things, from dead people voting to several thousand people who moved from their Registered voter address but voted anyway. This is bananas, and we can’t let…

John,   We are looking for volunteers for Jim to help with our efforts to rehabilitate thousands of GOP mail-in ballots that have been rejected. Rehabilitating ballots is the process that gives people a chance to sign an affidavit that their ballot should be counte…

We’re going to have to fight to make sure every LEGAL vote is counted

John,   We know you have heard a lot on this the past week, so we will make this update quick.   We have had updates in 3 of 7 counties in the past week since Election Day, and the margin is still razor thin, with a slight edge for our opponent.   We’ve launched a …

LAST day to vote early!

Let’s defeat Nancy Pelosi’s squad!

John,   I’ll cut straight to the chase —we have to win back a GOP majority in the House, and remove Nancy Pelosi and her crew from power. If it were up to them, we’d all be beholden to abig brother style government.   We have an opportunity to defeat a far-left rad…

We need to fund our GOTV effort

John,   I know you’re busy, so I will keep this short.   We are coming up just shy of our GOTV budget to turn out voters in this race, and if you can spare it, any amount to help us raise an extra $15,000 right now would be a God-send. DONATE $8.32 RIGHT NOW TO…

Why is Nancy Pelosi’s record important in this race?

John,   Nancy Pelosi is coming in BIG. Her political action committee, House Majority PAC, just announced a BIG broadcast buy in our district. If it wasn’t clear before, it should be now. Nancy Pelosi is trying to BUY our district to protect Lauren Underwood’s 100%…

State Senator Jim Oberweis has NEVER voted for a tax increase
