Given the fight that Congressman Peter Roskam has led to keep Boeing from selling jets to Iran, you can bet that the Chicago-based company executives will be raising money for Democratic Party opponent Sean Casten.
Here is a press release from Roskam:
Roskam releases statement on Boeing decision
Washington, D.C. — Representative Peter Roskam (R-IL) released a statement today following the announcement by Boeing that it would not sell jets to Iran:
“Boeing’s recent decision to refrain from selling jets to Iran, the world’s foremost state sponsor of terrorism, is a welcome change of direction for the company and I applaud their decision.
“If delivered, these planes would have likely been used to transport troops and weapons to the Assad Regime to support its atrocities against the Syrian people and to terrorist groups throughout the Middle East.
“The fewer aircraft Iran and its Revolutionary Guard Corps can use to sow death and destruction around the world, the better.”
