Democratic Rep. Raja Krishnamoorthi of Schaumburg makes jobs and the economy a priority. No, he didn’t join us in supporting President Trump’s growth-focused tax reform package. But he did co-sponsor a bill to provide high school and post-secondary students with on-the-job training in fields such as cyber-security and advanced manufacturing. Krishnamoorthi’s commitment to addressing the skills gap is one reason we like him. Another is his belief in bipartisanship. Krishnamoorthi told us in his questionnaire that he was the lone Democrat who attended Trump’s signing ceremony for that job training bill. He felt uncomfortable but put aside those feelings. “The people of this country elected us to govern,” he wrote. Exactly so. Running against Krishnamoorthi is Republican Jitendra “JD” Diganvker, an Uber driver and small business operator from Schaumburg. Krishnamoorthi is endorsed.
