From the Danielle Rowe for the State House campaign (52nd District)…
ISLAND LAKE – Lt. Governor Rebecca Kleefisch is standing with conservative reformer Danielle Rowe because she is the only candidate in the 52nd District race who can bring revolutionary change to Illinois. Lt. Governor Rebecca Kleefisch had this to say about Danielle Rowe, “Gov. Scott Walker and I, along with Republicans in the State Legislature, turned things around in Wisconsin by translating conservative grassroots principles into public policy. As a result, we’ve grown jobs, fully funded our state pensions and balanced our state budget without raising taxes. Danielle Rowe is exactly the type of conservative, grassroots leader Illinois needs in its General Assembly. I believe Rowe will do what she says when it comes to standing for pro-growth economic policies that respect the small business owner/operator and standing against the profligate tax-borrow-spend culture in Springfield that has decimated Illinois’ economy. My only fear is that Rowe will be so effective in Springfield she may drive Chicago Democrats north of the border to hide out in Wisconsin.”
“I am honored to have such a prominent conservative woman standing with me in my campaign. She is a fighter and I am a fighter,” Rowe said. “We don’t accept the status quo and we challenge the false premises and bad policies that have led to economic devastation in our states. We need revolutionary reforms like those in Wisconsin to turn our state around.”
“The voters in our district have a clear choice: I support the reforms of Governor Walker and Lt. Governor Kleefisch and my opponents do not,” Rowe said. “I support the revolutionary change Governor Scott Walker and Lt. Governor Kleefisch have delivered in Wisconsin. Walker & Kleefisch inherited a $3.6 billion budget deficit and they stopped runaway spending and borrowing, balanced the budget in one year without raising taxes and created tens of thousands of private sector jobs as a result of their improved business climate. My opponents represent the status quo in Illinois and a continuation of the same old, failed policies that got us into this mess in the first place.”
Putting her grassroots conservative principles into policy action is what led to Danielle Rowe’s endorsement by the Illinois Tea Party. Rowe is the first woman and first State Representative candidate ever endorsed by the statewide tea party organization. Rowe’s campaign has also been highlighted by American Grizzlies United and Organizing 4 Palin. Danielle is the only state representative candidate in the entire country to have earned that distinction from the Sarah Palin supporting grassroots organization.
Rowe went to Wisconsin and stood with Republican Governor Scott Walker and Lieutenant Governor Rebecca Kleefisch when they were fighting for revolutionary change in early 2011. Rowe returned to Wisconsin last summer to help coordinate the State Senate recall campaigns against Democrat legislators who fled to Illinois instead of doing their jobs and voting up or down on real reforms.
