“I’m extremely proud and honored to have an endorsement from former Congresswoman, Michele Bachmann, Her strong stand for Constitutional government, lower taxes, education reform and her support of life, faith and family, match what my campaign is all about. Her bold leadership continues to inspire Americans and I admire her work she’s doing today, preparing future leaders,” said Marter.

Bachmann won four congressional races, serving in Congress from 2007 to 2015. She ran for President in 2012. She was the founder of the Tea Party Caucus and she served on the Financial Services Committee and the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence.

“I am proud of all the issues James supports. We need a member of Congress from this district who stands in support of these issues,” Bachmann said.

James Marter, running in Illinois’ 14th Congressional District against Lauren Underwood, is already endorsed by individuals with extensive experience in foreign policy, homeland security, education, immigration, law enforcement, tax-policy and religious freedom.
