U.S. Rep. Bill Foster recently endorsed Dani Brzozowski, the Democratic nominee in the 16th Illinois Congressional District for the 2020 general election.
Brzozowski is challenging incumbent U.S. Rep. Adam Kinzinger, R-Channahon, who has served in Congress since 2011. Her campaign has focused on issues like social justice, campaign finance reform, and combating climate change.
Foster, D-Naperville, was featured in an endorsement video posted on Brzozowski’s campaign Facebook page last week.
“I support her because I need a partner to help me fight for our shared priorities like lowering prescription drug costs, fixing our crumbling infrastructure and keeping our rural hospitals open,” Foster said in the video.
Brzozowski has criticized Kinzinger on a range of issues, including his vote against impeaching President Donald Trump.
More recently, she took aim at his comments on protests advocating for criminal justice reform, calling on Kinzinger to directly address the death of George Floyd at the hands of police officers in Minneapolis.
Brzozowski has also received endorsements from Sen. Dick Durbin, D-Illinois, the progressive anti-Trump group Indivisible and the anti-gun violence group Moms Demand Action.
Kinzinger easily won reelection in the heavily Republican district in 2018, defeating his opponent by a 59% to 41% margin. The 16th Congressional District spans all or parts of 14 counties, including Will, Grundy, LaSalle and DeKalb counties.
The general election is set for Nov. 3.
