Post Election Discussion Sponsored by Tenth Dems Nov. 21 at 7 PM

To so many, it seems like a dark time. But together we have the power to make our own light. And here in the 10th District, there’s already more than a flicker.

Overall, Election Day was an overwhelming success for the people of the 10th District. Democrats up and down the ballot won. Some candidates were strongly favored, while some surprised prognosticators. All were part of a ticket that withstood a scary, shocking rightward pull seen in so many areas of the country.

Join like-minded Democratic voters on Monday, November 21, in Lake Forest to discuss what happened in 2016 and what we can do going forward.

Congratulations to all of our wonderful Democratic candidates. Some of our victorious candidates include Tammy Duckworth, Susana Mendoza, Brad Schneider, Kim Foxx, Melinda Bush, Julie Morrison, Sam Yingling, and Erin Cartwright Weinstein.

In one of the most closely-watched races this cycle, Democrat Brad Schneider comfortably defeated incumbent Republican Congressman Bob Dold. Brad’s victory was a repudiation of Dold’s double-talk. Now, more than ever, the people of the 10th District must be represented in Washington by someone who is not afraid to stand up to Donald Trump and a right-wing Congress if and when they continue their assault on the environment, gun violence legislation, women’s choice, immigration reform, and an economy that works for all. Fortunately, Brad Schneider is the voice the 10th District needs.

And Brad will represent us in the Illinois delegation along with Tammy Duckworth, who ousted Republican Mark Kirk to become our new U.S. Senator from Illinois.

Tenth Dems is proud to have helped so many 2016 candidates who will continue to build on the progress we’ve made nationally and locally, and will stand up to those looking to take us backwards. Thank for being an integral part of that success. Let’s do it again starting with a discussion this Monday, November 21, at 7 pm, at the Gorton Community Center, 400 E. Illinois Road, in Lake Forest. Click here to sign up as we continue the work we put so much heart into in 2016. We can’t stop. We won’t stop.
