RECRUITMENT FAIL: Dems in IL-17 fail to “excite donors and raise funds”

March 14, 2022

The DCCC’s recruitment crisis continues.

Illinois’ WCIA reports, “Democrats running for a chance to replace U.S. Rep. Cheri Bustos in Congress are struggling to excite donors and raise funds” in the 17th Congressional District.

This comes after Democrats’ former recruit, Rockford Mayor Tom McNamara decided against running for the seat.

NRCC Comment: “Democrats are struggling to recruit serious candidates because no one wants to defend their failing record of skyrocketing prices, rising crime, and an unmitigated crisis along our southern border.”– NRCC Spokeswoman Courtney Parella
