Roskam Draws Female Barrington Hills Opponent

Click to enlarge this evidence that Leslie Coolidge is a Democrat.

Although there is not web site I could find for Leslie Coolidge’s 6th District congressional campaign, she has filed her intentions to run as a Democrat with the Federal Elections Commission in the 5th congressional district.

That would mean she intends to challenge incumbent Republican Congressman Peter Roskam.

She found Wheaton Patch and you can read what appears to be her press release there.

Interestingly, the article (presumably her press release) does not mention she is running as a Democrat.

Her campaign treasurer is from Rhode Island.

Perhaps she will figure out that 100,000 of her potential constituents live in McHenry County.
