This race will be decided on a fundamental question: who has the experience and record of delivering for Illinois families in Congress? Bill Foster is a scientist with a long record of getting things done. Foster will continue to be effective and make change on key issues ranging from abortion, to the environment, to good jobs.
All primary voters district-wide, particularly non-college voters and older women, and those in the far northwest counties (Lake, McHenry, Boone, and DeKalb) need to see that:
- Foster is a long-time advocate for abortion rights. In a post-Roe world, Bill Foster has prioritized protecting a woman’s right to an abortion and access to reproductive health care. He is working to pass a federal law that ensures women across the country have abortion access.
- Foster is a pro-worker, pro-union job creator. Before he served in Congress, as a businessowner, Foster put people before profits to keep jobs here in the U.S. Now, in Congress, he’s responsible for helping to reopen the Chrysler plant in Belvidere, bringing thousands of good, union jobs to folks across the district.
- As a Fermilab scientist, Foster supports policies backed by science. As a scientist, he understands the need to combat climate change and protect our environment.
