ELBURN - Former Chicago Bear and current television sports analyst Dan Hampton has endorsed Keith Wheeler in his bid to become State Representative for the 50th District.
This Friday, March 7 Congressman Randy Hultgren will also officially endorse him.
In a statement, Hultgren said, “Keith Wheeler is the only candidate who is uniquely qualified to speak for today’s small business owners. Keith understands that policies such as a progressive income tax, a 67% tax hike, and a broken workman’s compensation system, are devastating to job creation not only in the 50th District, but all across Illinois.”
Wheeler responded to the Hultgren endorsement saying, “It’s such a privilege to have earned the endorsement of Congressman Hultgren. Randy is our State's highest-rated conservative leader and I look forward to continuing our strong partnership to develop opportunities for so many of our local residents who are struggling."
