FEATURED RACE 
Illinois’ Third Congressional District

Marie Newman Vs. Dan Lipinski 

Marie Newman

I’m running for Congress because we finally need to address “everybody’s everyday” to drive innovation and invest in our people, infrastructure, mass transportation, jobs, training, and growing an ever greener economy. We need a real vision with a real plan. As part of that plan, we need to solve the “patchwork of jobs”

Dan Lipinski

Growing up on the Southwest Side of Chicago I learned the values of hard work and service to others, as well as the importance of using common sense. These shared values make our district a great place to live. I have brought these principles, along with the problem-solving skills I learned as an engineer, to the classroom as a teacher and to service in the U.S. Congress

“Democracy is a method of realizing the broadest measure of justice to all human beings … only by putting power in the hands of each inhabitant can we hope to approximate in the ultimate use of that power the greatest good to the greatest number.”
