Doug Truax Picks up Endorsement from Congressman - and fellow West Point Grad - John Shimkus

Over at the Illinois Review, they've released the news that longtime Congressman John Shimkus has stuck his neck out and is standing with Doug Truax for the United States Senate over Jim Oberweis.

The most interesting thing to note for us in all of this is that Doug Truax and Congressman John Shimkus are BOTH graduates of the United States Military Academy at West Point, NY.  (and...for those of you naysayers who say that there are never any 'good' politicians, I respectfully submit the fact that these two guys are West Point grads as proof you are wrong!)

Those West Point roots run deep.  As they should.

From the Illinois Review:
U.S. John Shimkus (IL-15) said between Truax and State Senator Jim Oberweis, Truax is the better Republican candidate to take on Dick Durbin in the general election. 
"I am impressed with Doug's military service and his positive agenda for the future," said Shimkus. "He's a young, impressive, forward-looking conservative who would represent us well in Washington."

Shimkus is the second Downstate congressman to endorse Truax. Last month, Aaron Schock, of Peoria, endorsed him, as has former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich.

Go give Doug Truax a hand. Please.  We need him helping bring more folks into the ILGOP.  Visit his site to get involved or request a yard sign.
