Kelly Nabs Endorsements from Senators Trotter, Raoul and Hunter: 2nd District Election
The endorsements came just one day after Kelly's former boss announced her support for another candidate,
Three state Senators endorsed 2nd District congressional candidates Robin Kelly Tuesday, according to a press release from her campaign. State senators Donne Trotter, Kwame Raoul and Mattie Hunter have all announced their support for Kelly.
"Robin Kelly is my choice for Congress because she has a clear vision for our future," Trotter said. "Robin has personally been through the economic struggles that too many are facing right now, and come out the other side. We can count on Robin Kelly to fight for us every single day because she knows firsthand what it is like, and that is why I am endorsing her."
The endorsements come on the heels of Cook County Board President Toni Preckwinkle announcing her endorsement of Kelly's rival State Sen. Toi Hutchinson, despite Kelly working as Preckwinkle chief administrative officer for two years.
