IFA Endorses Esther Joy King in the 17th Congressional District

Written by David E. Smith

We’ve spent months investigating the candidates running for state and federal office. We have emailed/messaged them, compiled voter guide surveys, reviewed their web sites and social media, analyzed voting records, compiled public statements, and met with many of them. Our endorsements are based on the top-tier issues that matter to pro-life/pro-family voters.

Therefore, the IFA Board of Directors and staff enthusiastically endorses Esther Joy King in the 17th Congressional District. We believe Esther will be able to stand up to the Left’s smears and tactics and will help turn Illinois around. Esther is a transparent, knowledgeable, and effective candidate who will fight for Illinois families and uphold Judeo-Christian values.

We encourage you to vote for Esther Joy King (and Mark Curran for U.S. Senate) in the upcoming November 3rd General Election.
