Senator Dick Durbin Endorses Sean Casten

Sean Casten, candidate for U.S. Representative in Illinois’ Sixth Congressional District, announced he earned the endorsement of U.S. Senator Dick Durbin (D-IL).

“Sean Casten deals in facts every day as a scientist, and we need his approach right now in Congress,” Durbin said. “While Donald Trump and Republicans in Congress attack the middle class, Casten will fight back to lower health care and prescription drug costs. Instead of raising taxes on working families in the 6th District, Casten will be a champion for them and oppose tax cuts for millionaires and corporations. The choice couldn’t be clearer for voters – Casten will be the strong, independent congressman to represent their best interests in Washington.”

“I’m delighted to have Senator Durbin’s support and his confidence in my candidacy means a great deal to me,” Casten said. “I look forward to working with Senator Durbin in the next Congress. Together, we will create good-paying jobs, restore integrity to our democratic process, help our veterans, ensure every American has equal access to our courts, and pass fair and lasting immigration laws, among the many critical issues facing our nation.”

Sean Casten is a scientist and clean-energy entrepreneur with a record of creating jobs in the western suburbs of Chicago while fighting climate change. Sean is running for Congress to fight Peter Roskam’s and Donald Trump’s efforts to take away Illinois families’ health care, and fix the GOP’s reckless tax scam that raises taxes on the middle class to cut them for corporations and the rich. Sean and his wife Kara are raising their two daughters in Downers Grove where they both attend public schools.
