from the Democratic party of Illinois executive director Christian Mitchell
a welcome message
There’s a lot at stake for Illinoisans this fall. Bruce Rauner and Illinois Republicans are trying to stop progress and take us backwards. Rauner’s been a disaster. Record debt, lagging job growth and a refusal to speak out against the radical Republicans running the country. The Democratic Party of Illinois is dedicated to rebuilding our state and reinvesting in its people. By expanding access to affordable health care, child care, college and technical training we can foster a dynamic economy that creates good jobs and provides a pathway for people to make it to the middle class. We can and must protect our most vulnerable, including children, the elderly, persons with disabilities, the homeless, and veterans facing physical and mental health challenges. We are also standing firm against attacks on our civil rights and put an end to discrimination in all of its forms. Learn more about the Democratic Party of Illinois’ priorities on the "Our Illinois" page and use the "Get Involved" page to find out how you can support Democrats at all levels. By working together and voting this fall we can take back our state and country.
