AURORA - Despite a record of voting Democrat and a residence outside the district, GOP candidate for the 8th Congressional District Manju Goel claims in a new pamphlet (below) that she has the backing of Illinois Congressmen Aaron Schock and Rodney Davis.
While sources tell Illinois Review another Republican may enter the primary in early November, Goel is currently the only GOP candidate to announce a bid to challenge Democrat Rep. Tammy Duckworth.
Schock's endorsement reads: "Manju is our Best Shot! She represents in the human form all of the ideals our party stands for: hardwork, faith, strong family and american exceptionalism"
Davis' says: "I fully endorse and support Manju Goel for Congress from IL District 8th"
