Jim Marter’s campaign for Congress in Illinois’ 14th District continues to build a list of personal and organizational endorsements.

He is the three times elected, current Chairman of the Kendall County GOP https://kendallcountygop.com/representation/, in the heart of the new IL14. He is a 2024 Presidential Delegate, Donald J. Trump, 14th Congressional District. He serves on the RCCA (Rep. County Chairman’s Association), as the Regional VP for Collar Counties.

He was selected as the Illinois 2020 14th District Presidential Elector. Illinois Conservative Union – former Advisory Board Member. www.ILPAC.org

He previously served in the role of Deputy for Illinois’ 14th Congressional District on the GOP’s State Central Committee and is a local elected official in his hometown of Oswego, Illinois serving as an Oswego Library District Board Trustee (2021-2025) https://www.oswego.lib.il.us/about-us/board-of-trustees/.

His only opponent running in the primary does not live in the district and therefore can’t vote for himself.

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.
