  • Jesse Sullivan (R-Petersburg, IL): Someone has to remind [Gov Pritzker] Chicago is in IL and [rampant street] crime there is his problem, too, and he has to roll up his sleeves and try to solve it…
  • “No. 1, just the morale side of our law enforcement- to say, thank you [to police] …for every day sacrificing for …our communities– and that is a message I will be delivering loud and clear…”
  • “Some people say, if you are supporting law enforcement… you are against our minority communities…[but] my wife is Hispanic, our kids are [Hispanic]- like we have [a] black foster daughter.”
  • “In 95% of Chicago’s homicides, minorities were the victims. If you love people, you will want to keep our streets safe…so supporting law enforcement, that’s one of the central issues of our campaign. We cannot be a city of crime and still attract the businesses of the future here to Chicago.”
