Jed Davis Earns IFA’s Pro-Family Endorsement

Dear Friends and Neighbors,

The Primary Election is only a few weeks away! As you may know, early voting begins on May 19th. Registered voters can cast a ballot at their township offices as well as at their county clerk’s office.

We want to remind you how important it is to exercise your civic duty to vote and be good stewards of God’s gift of self-government. We the people have the responsibility of selecting honest, wise and God-fearing people to represent us in Springfield and in Washington D.C.

If you will be out of town or are disabled, you should consider the “vote by mail” option. In fact, we urge you to consider voting early to make sure that your ballot isn’t cast by those who want to steal the election. Upon request, your local county clerk will send any qualified registered voter a ballot by mail. (See enclosed list for contact information.)

As the state’s only full time Christian pro-life/pro-family organization, we are proud to endorse the following candidates running for office:

For the past several months, IFA staff and board members have been researching the candidates running for state and federal offices in order to make endorsements and/or recommendations to our valued subscribers. Through this process, we hope to determine who among the candidates fear God, have a good reputation, love truth, and will govern honestly and righteously (Exodus 18:21; Proverbs 29:2; Acts 6:30).

Our endorsements are based on the top-tier issues that matter to pro-life, pro-family voters. We have mailed every contender running in Illinois, reviewed voter guide surveys, evaluated web sites and social media platforms, examined voting records, assembled public statements, and interviewed many candidates in person.

The Race for GovernorThe IFA Board of Directors and staff have observed Darren Bailey’s political beginning in Springfield as he triumphed over a weak-kneed incumbent for a seat in the Illinois House in 2018, and later won an open Illinois Senate seat in 2020.

During his four years in the Illinois General Assembly, Darren Bailey has not once succumbed to peer pressure, insults, or mockery – common tactics of the bipartisan combine. He has been a valiant voice for Life and pro-family issues. And religious liberty, parental rights, and educational choice have no better defender in Illinois than Darren Bailey.

Bailey is a committed Christian who seeks to put Christ before and in everything he does. He seeks to conserve those good things provided to us by Christ.

Bailey unabashedly believes in the sanctity of human life. He has steadily fought against the egregious, anti-life legislation in both chambers of the Illinois General Assembly, and IFA does not doubt that he will be the best advocate for pre-born human beings that the office of governor of Illinois has ever seen.

During the 2020 COVID lockdowns, current governor J.B. Pritzker took maximum advantage of the crisis and enforced mandates way outside his realm of authority. Darren Bailey did not let him get away with it and filed a lawsuit which freed Illinois of the stay-at-home order.

If you want a bold, commonsense nominee who has an exceptional voting record plus shares our Christian pro-life, pro-family, small government principles, Darren Bailey is the clear choice in the June 28th Republican Primary Election.

Darren Bailey is a champion with a clear track record. Courageous. Bold. Determined. Honest. Trustworthy. Genuine. These words describe Darren Bailey.

The Race for U.S. SenateVoters in the state of Illinois are embarrassed by the radical left-wing views of our current U.S. Senators. Tammy Duckworth, for example, isn’t merely pro-choice, but she supports public taxes funding abortion. She opposes parental notification, but favors requiring churches and religious groups to cover birth control and abortion insurance.

Duckworth even voted NAY to providing medical care to infants born-alive during an abortion.

Kathy Salvi understands the primacy of the sanctity of human life. The 62-year-old mother of six adult children is the wife of former State Representative Al Salvi (1993-1996), who was the Republican nominee for U.S. Senate in 1996 and Illinois Secretary of State in 1998.

Both Salvis have been outspoken pro-life, pro-family conservatives. Both attended the private Catholic school, Carmel High School in Mundelein, as did their good friend, former U.S. Senator and former presidential candidate Rick Santorum (R-PA).

We have every confidence that if elected, Kathy Salvi will uphold traditional Judeo-Christian values and seek to restrain the spending and scope of Congress. She will work to secure the border, make us energy independent, support local police, and promote education choice.

The Race for 75th House Dist.Voters in Illinois’ 75th House District have a very clear choice: common sense pro-family values, lower taxes, and job growth, or an establishment Springfield Swamp creature who voted with Planned Parenthood, the ACLU, Equality Illinois in favor of the pro-abortion, anti-woman ERA.

As a husband, father, and school board president of Parkview Christian Academy in Yorkville, Jed Davis resoundingly gets our endorsement. Jed is been focused on putting Kendall County and America first and helping rebuild the 75th District by reducing taxes, supporting families, parental rights, eliminating CRT and championing local police.

Jed is a man of integrity, has a strong Christian faith, and unwavering principles. We need statemen like him in Springfield because we know that he will boldly speak for our values, defended religious liberty, honor our veterans and first responders, called out harmful transgender policies, and destructive K-12 sex education mandates. These are some of the reasons why so many local businessmen and family organizations have endorsed him.

Turning Illinois Red — We are relieved to see that there are yet men and women who are wise and courageous, recognizing and standing firm for truth even against bracing political winds. Men and women who demonstrate wisdom and courage in, for example, defending the lives of those unwanted by their own mothers and those whom others have decided are unworthy of life. These candidates deserve our vigorous and vocal support.

That is why we are pleased to endorse these contenders to you.

Please make every effort to cast your ballot on or before June 28th to ensure that the best candidates are nominated. We’ve endorsed Darren Bailey, Kathy Salvi and Jed Davis because we firmly believe that they will selflessly serve the people of Illinois.

It is important to point out that if conservatives fail to vote in any election, we enable the Left to take the reins of government, which means bigger government and less individual freedom. As you know this is a dangerous proposition, as the Left seems to be moving steadily further out on the left-wing of the political spectrum, and now openly embraces socialism, critical race theory and transgender confusion.

We cannot remain silent and/or indifferent in the face of this destructive agenda. Please, pass this information along to your friends and neighbors.

Finally, we need your help! We are asking that everyone who reads this letter commit to praying for the upcoming elections. Pray for God’s mercy on our state and nation. Pray against those ungodly agendas in Washington D.C. and Springfield; may they be completely defeated.
