Peter Roskam’s Last Pre-Election Pep Talk

-By Warner Todd Huston

On October 27 I attended one last fundraiser held by Illinois Republican Congressman Peter Roskam (6th District). It was held in Lisle and featured a nicely filled room of supporters.

Congressman Roskam is a very popular fellow in the 6th District (even the newly configured one) and is always a gracious host.

Roskam is also one of the more powerful Republicans in Congress serving as the Republican’s Chief Deputy Whip.

I took just a few minutes after the event was over to ask the congressman for his final words, a pep talk, if you will, to get out the vote.


A full house came out to wish Congressman Roskam and the GOP good luck
