Thank you for signing up!
Thank you so much for signing up to receive emails from my U.S. Senate campaign to bring accountability and transparency to government at all levels. I am touched and encouraged by the hundreds of people who have contacted my website in the few days since I announced my intention to run.
Obviously, we will not have the support of the political insiders and special interests who have dominated politics in Illinois, so your interest in this campaign will help make the difference. I will be sure to keep you informed as our campaign develops, and I hope you will contact me with your thoughts and ideas.
Meanwhile, I will be making my formal announcement during the week after Labor Day, followed by a tour around the state. I will be sure to let you know as we put together the details.
Thank you again for your interest in this campaign. With your help and support, I know we can make a difference.
