DSCC CHAIRMAN ROBERT MENENDEZ STATEMENT ON ILLINOIS PRIMARY RESULTS

U.S. Senator Robert Menendez, chairman of the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee, released the following statement on the results of the Illinois primary election:

"Congratulations to Alexi Giannoulias on today's hard-fought victory. Each of the Democrats waged spirited, aggressive campaigns - the same approach it will take to keep this seat blue. I look forward to doing whatever I can to help the State Treasurer transition into the general election and of course win in November. We know that in this environment, Democrats cannot take anything for granted, and that is why Alexi's campaign is already working hard to frame the race. Voters in Illinois will face a stark choice in this election: moving forward with a candidate who has a record of saving Illinois jobs, or moving backwards with a Washington insider who wants to return to the failed policies that created the economic mess we now face."
