Congresswoman Jan Schakowsky Endorses Robin Kelly

Chicago–(ENEWSPF)–February 13, 2013. Robin Kelly, candidate for Illinois’ second Congressional district, was endorsed by Congresswoman Jan Schakowsky at a press conference this morning.

“I’m endorsing Robin because Congress needs someone who is going to fight for strong gun violence prevention laws, and Robin Kelly is that candidate.  Robin has the experience to hit the ground running and the passion to make a difference,” said Congresswoman Schakowsky.

Congresswoman Schakowsky adds her name to a growing list of Congressional, state, and community leaders who have thrown their support behind Robin.  On Sunday Kelly was endorsed by two of Schakowsky’s colleagues, Congressmen Danny Davis and Bobby Rush.

“I am proud to have the endorsement of a woman who has done so much for this community.  In Congress I’ll work with Congresswoman Schakowsky and President Obama to stand up to the NRA, and pass common sense gun control laws that will save lives and make our communities safer places to live and raise a family,” said Kelly.
