Lombardi Explores Running for Congress

Manhattan, IL . . . Today Jack Lombardi (R-Manhattan) announced that he is seriously considering running for Congress against Congressman Adam Kinzinger in the 2022 Republican Primary for Illinois’ 16th Congressional District.

“As a father, I am very worried about the direction of our nation and the lack of leadership by professional politicians who are more interested in headlines than policy.  Congress has been working hand in hand with the Biden administration to commit generational theft with these expensive spending.  When they are not stealing from the next generation, they are consumed by political gamesmanship.  Congressman Kinzinger is part of the problem.  I want to be the solution to the serious issues confronting our country.  That’s why I am testing the waters for running in 2022,” said Lombardi.

“Right now, we are facing a crisis at the border.  The incumbent is more focused on fundraising for weak Republicans than holding the Biden administration accountable for flooding in of illegals with COVID.  We just lost a year of our lives due to the shutdown to stop the pandemic and Kinzinger says nothing!  Now more than ever our borders need to be secured.  No American should lose their life because we have open borders due to bad decisions by Biden,” said Lombardi.

“It is time to put our country on the right track by reviving our economy, cleaning up Congress, securing our borders, and defending our Constitution,” said Lombardi.

You can count on Jack to have the backbone to stand up for our shared conservative values:

Strong borders are essential

Lawfulness is an important concept for Jack in every aspect of life. That’s why he strongly opposes illegal immigration.

Life is to be protected

Jack is unapologetically pro-life and believes in protecting children from conception and beyond.

Law and order are to be respected

Jack believes in and supports law enforcement, first responders and the great work they do every day in maintaining peace, safety, health and unity throughout America. He wants them to have the resources and respect they deserve.

Small businesses must survive

Having spent many years helping both small and large businesses with their marketing strategies, Jack understands the unique struggles of smaller businesses in the Chicago area. He strongly supports an economic environment in which those businesses can thrive.

Government has too much power

Jack supports smaller government that reduces federal policy interference in local matters and the functioning of business. He believes excessive government involvement is a roadblock to progress.

Censorship is wrong.

Having achieved business success through the internet, Jack is a supporter of free internet speech and intends to tackle social media censorship of conservatives. He believes social media is a tool that should raise awareness of social injustices faced by all communities and that no one, in the government or private sector, has a right to censor those issues.
