"Our communities are facing an epidemic of gun violence, and we need more members of Congress who can be trusted to fight for common sense gun control measures. Robin Kelly is a woman of integrity and conviction, and President Obama, Congressman Davis and I need her as our partner in ending gun violence,” said Congressman Bobby Rush.
Congressman Danny Davis also agreed. “Robin Kelly has the kind of pragmatism that you need to get results in Washington, while never compromising her beliefs like many do. If we are going to stop the NRA in their tracks, and make our communities safe again, Robin Kelly is the right woman for the job.”
“I am honored to have the endorsement of Congressmen Rush and Davis, and look forward to working with them and our President to rid our streets of dangerous weapons, and make the second Congressional district a place where people are proud to live, work and raise their families,” said Robin Kelly.
The strong show of support from Congressmen Rush and Davis, comes on the heels of the coveted endorsement of the Chicago Tribune. In strong language the Chicago Tribune said the Robin Kelly "is not a show-boater. She won't dazzle you with ebullience. She doesn't grandstand. She just works hard."
These are big endorsements and may favorably impact the race.
