Election Results Statement: Putting People Over Politics in the 6th Congressional District

Orland Park, IL — Orland Park Mayor Keith Pekau released the following statement after being named the Republican nominee for Congress in Illinois’ 6th District:


“Far-left politicians have put special interest, party politics, and their extreme far-left agendas ahead of doing what’s best for the people they’re supposed to represent, and it’s led to rising crime, the highest inflation since 1980, and a declining economy. 6th District residents are struggling to keep up. It’s an honor they placed their trust in me to put people over politics! Thank you to everyone who voted for me—it means more to me than you know—and thank you to everyone who has supported our campaign. This race in November is going to garner national attention and I’m ready to show Republicans they made the right choice in nominating me to be the common sense leader to defeat the failed far-left here in the 6th District and help win back the House!”
