Carl Spoerer is running for Congress because he believes America can do better. He understands the challenges facing the working class, and he knows the Trump agenda is only making the situation worse.
Carl is not a career politician, but he’s the right man for the job. As the championship coach of the University of Illinois Women’s Rugby Club (and a former player) he’s spent decades developing leadership skills and and cultivating a winner’s mentality. And he’s going to need every bit of his competitive savvy in this election, as he will be taking on a Republican incumbent who has held his seat 22 years (and who ran unopposed in 2016).
John Shimkus is a loyal Trump supporter who follows the standard Republican playbook, favoring Wall Street over Main Street, corporations over unions, and Big Oil over the environment. Coach Carl has seen enough and knows Illinois deserves better. He is determined to prove to the Republican Party that no seat should be taken for granted. And with your support, we can make it happen.
