Freshman Democratic Rep. Lauren Underwood gets another GOP challenger

Author: Editor

Republican state Sen. Sue Rezin of Morris on Tuesday became the latest contender for the GOP nomination to take on freshman Democratic U.S. Rep. Lauren Underwood of Naperville next year. 

Rezin announced she has filed a declaration of candidacy and other paperwork with the Federal Election Commission for a run in the sprawling suburban 14th Congressional District. She is among at least a half-dozen Republicans looking to take on the first-term Democrat in a district that had traditionally held strong Republican leanings.

Congressman Foster wants to allow 'Dreamers' to serve in military

Author: Editor

U.S. Rep. Bill Foster, D-Naperville, introduced a resolution in support of allowing so-called “Dreamers,” or undocumented immigrants who were brought to the country as children, to be able to serve in the military. 

Foster argued that allowing undocumented immigrants to serve would improve readiness and let young people who grew up in the U.S. serve the country, according to a news release.

Flynn probably broke law by failing to disclose foreign income, House Oversight leaders say

Author: Editor

The lead Democrat and Republican on the House Oversight Committee meted out a rare bipartisan rebuke of former Trump national security adviser Michael Flynn on Tuesday after seeing private information that confirmed the former administration official failed to disclose foreign income from Russia and Turkey.

The public criticism by the senior Republican on the House’s chief investigative panel is unusual and presents a dilemma for the White House, which was accused of failing to provide everything the committee asked for — an assertion White House press secretary Sean Spicer disputed.

In any normal election year, we’d compare the two presidential candidates side by side on the issues. But this is not a normal election year. A comparison like that would be an empty exercise in a race where one candidate — our choice, Hillary Clinton — has a record of service and a raft of pragmatic ideas, and the other, Donald Trump, discloses nothing concrete about himself or his plans while promising the moon and offering the stars on layaway. (We will explain in a subsequent editorial why we believe Mr. Trump to be the worst nominee put forward by a major party in modern American history.)

But this endorsement would also be an empty exercise if it merely affirmed the choice of Clinton supporters. We’re aiming instead to persuade those of you who are hesitating to vote for Mrs. Clinton — because you are reluctant to vote for a Democrat, or for another Clinton, or for a candidate who might appear, on the surface, not to offer change from an establishment that seems indifferent and a political system that seems broken.

Running down the other guy won’t suffice to make that argument. The best case for Hillary Clinton cannot be, and is not, that she isn’t Donald Trump.
