Jim Marter’s campaign for Congress in Illinois’ 14th District continues to build a list of personal endorsements. Marter is the twice elected, current Chairman of the Kendall County GOP, in the heart of the new IL14. He is also in the role of Deputy for Illinois’ 14th Congressional District on the GOP’s State Central Committee and a local elected official in his hometown of Oswego, Illinois. Some opponents running in the primary don’t live in the district and therefore can’t even vote for themselves. As the list shows, Jim Marter has a strong grassroots network at the local, district and state level, as well as nationally known issue experts, lending their support and expertise. He is ready for the job and best positioned to replace Democrat Lauren Underwood.
