    The establishment GOP inside the Beltway spent much of 2014 discouraging Republicans from mounting primary challenges to sitting GOP lawmakers. In 2016, the Republican Party would be well-advised not to interfere in the race for Congress in Illinois 18th Congressional District. “Attorney Mark Zalcman, formerly a Chillicothe resident who now lives in Normal, announced Monday that he planned to seek the GOP nomination for the 18th Congressional District seat that Schock now holds, running on a platform centered on his Christian faith and values and using the slogan ‘Because Washington needs the Gospel,’” The Peoria Journal-Star reported. “He’s also an...

    Local Republican officials in the 13th district will now select a new nominee to replace Johnson, who was first elected to the House in 2000. A senior Illinois GOP operative immediately pushed Rodney Davis, the former Illinois Republican Party executive director, as a potential successor to Johnson. The source also suggested Davis would have the support of his former boss, Rep. John Shimkus (R). Shimkus currently represents much of the redrawn 13th district but is seeking re-election in a nearby safe Republican district. State Reps. Chapin Rose and Adam Brown as well as state Sen. Sam McCann are also considered...

    Rep. Adam Kinzinger, R-Ill., has defeated fellow Republican Rep. Don Manzullo in the state's 16th District GOP congressional primary. The AP called the race for Kinzinger just after 11 p.m. Eastern time. With 85 percent of precincts reporting, Kinzinger led Manzullo 56 percent to 44 percent. The race between Kinzinger and Manzullo, forced because Illinois lost a congressional seat and state Democrats controlled the redistricting process, followed a common tea party-against-establishment trend in recent GOP primaries. But the script flipped here, with 10-term veteran Manzullo garnering the bulk of the tea party and movement conservative support while Kinzinger, a freshman,...

    Rep. Don Manzullo (R-Ill.) said last week he was “shocked” to hear a senior Department of Defense official agree with him that the administration’s plan to move detainees of Guantanamo Bay to Thomson, Ill., would pose an increased security risk. At a press conference in the House of Representatives, Manzullo said the official “agreed with me there would be an increased security risk to northwest Illinois, but he had no way of estimating the extent of this threat.” Manzullo told reporters he was “shocked” at the admission and later told he was confused about how the administration could manage...

    Rep. Manzullo mocks health care billBy Eric Petermann GateHouse News Service Fri Aug 14, 2009, 08:27 PM CDT Freeport, Ill. - It doesn’t take long to determine where Congressman Don Manzullo stands on the proposed national health care bill. “People need to go to their windows, stick their heads outside and scream ‘We’re not going to take this anymore!’,” Manzullo said Friday, Aug. 14, 2009, in an interview at The Journal-Standard. The 16th District U.S. Representative, a Republican, has held town hall meetings in Elizabeth, Sycamore, and Oregon to gage public opinion on the controversial legislation and to inform people...

    Manzullo Introduces $5,000 Vehicle Voucher Bill to Bolster Auto Sales, Put Americans Back to Work On Thursday, U.S. Rep. Don Manzullo introduced legislation to give Americans a $5,000 voucher to purchase a new vehicle, stimulating our struggling automobile manufacturing industry and putting millions of Americans back to work. The New Automobile Voucher Act of 2009 (HR 1606) would provide a one-time, $5,000 electronic voucher from the U.S. Treasury at the point of sale of a new vehicle. After 6 months, the voucher would drop to $2,500 and would expire on Jan. 1, 2011, or until the $75 billion authorized funding...

    Ears may have been burning at the Pentagon following a talk by Rep. Donald Manzullo (R-Ill.) about purchasing practices at the Department of Defense (DOD). Manzullo, chairman of the House Small Business Committee and a self-professed strong advocate for small manufacturers, castigated the Pentagon for not taking into account the effects of its purchasing practices on U.S. small business. "This is not a very pleasant subject to talk about"—namely, supporting and maintaining America's defense industrial base—because "[I'm] constantly fighting with the Pentagon" on this subject, said Manzullo, speaking at the Heritage Foundation, a conservative think tank in Washington. While insisting...

    Liberal MPs are accusing Alliance MPs of souring Canada-U.S. relations by distributing newspaper articles and other related materials to American politicians highlighting the government's opposition to the war in Iraq as well as anti-American statements made by Grit MPs. Liberal MP Sarkis Assadourian (Brampton Centre, Ont.) said he learned about the situation during a recent trip to Washington, D.C., as part of the Canada-U.S. Inter-Parliamentary Group when one of his American counterparts, Republican Congressman Don Manzullo, showed him the documents. Mr. Assadourian said the incident cast a pall over the meetings, which took place during the war, and that he...
