Daily Herald Endorses Raja for Congress
Daily Herald Endorsement Completes Clean Sweep of All 3 Chicago-Area Newspaper Endorsements for Raja
SCHAUMBURG, Ill., (October 14, 2016) – The editorial board of the Daily Herald, the largest suburban newspaper in the Chicago area, has “unreservedly” endorsed Raja Krishnamoorthi for Congress, describing him as having a “breadth and depth of experience that his current challenger cannot match.”
The Daily Herald endorsement makes it a clean sweep of Chicago-area newspaper endorsements for Krishnamoorthi following the endorsements earlier this week from the Chicago Tribune and the Chicago Sun-Times.
In its editorial, the Daily Herald praised Raja’s running of “two high-tech companies” and his “boosterism of solar energy.”
The newspaper added that Krishnamoorthi “speaks passionately and knowledgeably on a variety of issues but at the same time is approachable and genial.”
The son of immigrants, Raja grew up in Illinois. After college and law school, he became issues director for Barack Obama’s successful U.S. Senate campaign. He also served as a founding prosecutor in Illinois Attorney General Lisa Madigan’s anti-corruption unit.
A lifelong progressive, Raja is running for Congress to stand up for working families and grow and strengthen the middle class.
