Meet Congressman Adam Kinzinger.
At 20, Adam was elected to the County Board where he “shook up old assumptions.”
After 9-11, Kinzinger stepped forward to fly combat missions over Afghanistan and Iraq, earning the rank of Captain.
Back home, Adam stopped a brutal knife attack, saving a woman’s life, winning the Red Cross valor award.
In Congress, Adam Kinzinger’s called a “poster boy for the new breed of conservatives.”
I’m Adam Kinzinger and I approve this message.
“In just one year, I have helped lead the charge to change the conversation from how much to spend to how much to cut,” Kinzinger said at the *Ottawa town hall meeting. “My freshmen class and I are recognized as a ‘new breed of conservatives’ in Washington – one that has brought a fresh approach, with strong, conservative voices that will fight tooth and nail to stop the spending, create an environment where more private-sector jobs can be created, and where government will become less relevant in your everyday life.
“Over the last year, my freshmen class and I have not only provided a critically important check and balance on the excesses of the Obama Administration, but we have also held our fellow senior Republican colleagues accountable to maintain their core conservative principles, as after many years in Washington, some forgot why they were elected in the first place.”
Since he was sworn into the United States Congress in January 2011, Kinzinger was named to the House Energy and Commerce Committee, the House Transition Team and serves as a Republican Deputy Whip.
