Sean Casten announces NewDemPAC support

DOWNERS GROVE (March 26) – Sean Casten, the Democratic nominee for Congress in Illinois’ 6th District, on Monday was added to NewDemPAC’s “Candidate Watch List” – evidence that his campaign to bring facts back to Washington continues to gain momentum and support.

“NewDemPAC has a strong record of supporting positive, pragmatic candidates who believe that facts matter and who want to move our country forward,” Casten said. “I am proud to join the “Candidate Watch List,” and I look forward to working alongside NewDemPAC to bring our message of fact-based public policy to the voters of the 6th district.”

“Sean Casten is running on a forward-thinking, progress-oriented agenda that lends itself well to getting things done in Congress,” said Jon Boughtin, political director for the NewDemPAC. “He is doing the hard work to bring home a victory in the IL-6, and we’re pleased to add Sean Casten to the NewDem ‘Candidate Watch List’ for 2018.”

NewDemPAC was formed by the New Democrat Coalition, a group of 60 forward-thinking, pro-growth lawmakers committed to seeking pragmatic solutions that will foster a new era of American prosperity at home and keep our families secure from threats around the world.

Casten is a scientist, advocate, and clean energy entrepreneur who has devoted his career to fighting climate change. He led a successful start-up, headquartered in Westmont, that created hundreds of new clean energy jobs and kept manufacturing plants operating nationwide. He also is a proven advocate who has worked on Capitol Hill to craft smart, sustainable energy policy.

As the 6th District’s representative in Congress, Casten will stand up to Donald Trump and the Republicans who have declared war on our environment, our fundamental values, and our belief in the American Dream.
