Rep. Sean Casten Declares Victory in IL-06

Downers Grove, IL — U.S. Congressman Sean Casten has declared victory in the Democratic Primary for Illinois 6th Congressional District and released the following statements:

“First and foremost, thank you. Thank you to the voters who have entrusted me once again with their vote. Thank you to the volunteers who knocked on doors, made phone calls, and helped get out the vote. And, thank you to my wife, Kara, and daughter, Audrey, for all of their sacrifices.

“As we turn to the general election, we must remind ourselves what is at stake. I’m running for re-election to defend women’s reproductive rights, protect American democracy, end gun violence, and combat the climate crisis. Those are values that are shared throughout the 6th District but opposed by the far-right efforts that want to take this seat. I’m confident that, as they have time and again, voters will side with decency, humanity, science, and democracy.

“More than anything else, thank you to all who participated in this election. You are the reason the American experiment works.”
