Oregon, IL – The Illinois Conservatives announced today their endorsement of Chapin Rose for the 51st district state senator.
Representative Rose has been a consistent conservative, serving in the 110th district, and it is the firm belief of the organization that he will continue to be a principled leader as a state senator.
“Chapin has been a strong conservative voice and has provided his district with real, positive leadership in the short time he has been in Springfield,” Illinois Conservatives President Zach Oltmanns said. “He is going to help provide a bright future for the state.”
Rose has taken many strong, conservative stands in his six years as a representative, including serving on the Special Investigative Committee that impeached former Governor Rod Blagojevich, voting against un-balanced budgets, voting against the largest tax increase in state history and sponsoring and voting for conceal and carry legislation. His pro-second amendment stances even named him a past NRA Legislator of the Year. Prior to being elected to the General Assembly, Rose was a prosecutor that helped lead the crackdown on welfare fraud.
Receiving this endorsement will provide Rose with support from the Illinois Conservative members. This support includes grassroots assistance, outreach to younger votes, and additional volunteers to augment his campaign, something that should prove valuable as we approach Election Day.The Illinois Conservatives, a leading conservative grassroots organization in Illinois, believe in conservative ideologies and supports political candidates who share in those beliefs for the betterment of the State of Illinois.
