WASHINGTON - Wednesday in a House floor speech, Congressman Bob Dold (IL-10) reviewed 10th CD accomplishments during his freshman term. Dold, who vigorously denied Democrat campaign attack ads accusing him of being pro-life and Tea Party-backed, lost to Democrat challenger Brad Schneider in November by 2500 votes. Dold also rejected Grover Norquist's anti-tax pledge Dold signed in 2010.
Dold ended his House monologue by encouraging House colleagues to work together to find solutions to America's fiscal challenges.
"Governing and democracy is not easy. It requires compromise, it requires working together," he concluded. "As I've often said, putting people before politics and progress before partisanship is the only way to move this country forward and to have a better future."
