Event description

Description

Control of the House in 2018 will be decided by a small number of swing districts, places where the last election was decided by a thin margin. Our closest swing district is the Illinois 6th which is represented by Republican Peter Roskam. Roskam has voted with Trump 97.4% of the time. Most recently he helped create and voted for the tax bill. He does not support federal funds for healthcare. He supports the Muslim travel ban, is staunchly pro-life and anti same-sex marriage. He has even called climate change "junk science."

Swing Left Chicago is hosting a fundraiser for his Democratic challenger (whoever wins the primary). Piece Pizza will be donating food, Reid McCollum from the Coalition for a Better Illinois 6th District will be speaking and there will be music, drinking, and a silent auction (prizes categories will include: In-Home Pastry Chef; Theatre Night; Whiskey; Spa Day; Sporting Event, etc). Suggested donation of $10. Unfortunately, cash CANNOT be accepted but you can donate via the link below. We hope to see you there!
