From congressional candidate Jim Oberweis:

Sue Rezin, who is not from the district, is virtually unknown among Republican primary voters with two-thirds, 67%, who have never heard of her, only 8% are favorable towards her, 6% are unfavorable, and 20% have no opinion.
It will take north of a million dollars to get Rezin known.
Survey Summary: The General Election – Democratic Congresswoman Lauren Underwood is vulnerable and Jim Oberweis is the best Republican to defeat her.
[Oberweis writes there were 300 in the General Election sample.]
Incumbent Democrat Lauren Underwood is vulnerable in her bid for re-election in Illinois’ 14th Congressional District.
Underwood falls below the 50% threshold of a safe incumbent on her opinion rating, job approval and the ballot for Congress.
The majority of voters are not committed to Underwood.
This is a very bad sign for an incumbent.
After a series of issue message questions, Lauren Underwood collapses.
Jim Oberweis leads on the informed ballot for U.S. Congress, 51% to 37%, with a net gain of 13-points, while Lauren Underwood drops 10-points.
This means that the voters of Underwood’s district have no idea how she is voting in Washington.
Once these voters are told about the Congresswoman’s record, she falls from a 9-point lead to trailing by 14-points—a 23-point collapse.
Jim Oberweis is the clear frontrunner in the Republican Primary in Illinois Congressional District 14 with the highest and most favorable name recognition of a Republican candidate in the district.
Jim Oberweis can work to secure the nomination quickly to begin the campaign against Underwood.
Jim Oberweis’ voting record in the State Senate will propel him to victory in the general election as voters are drawn to his fiscally conservative record and values.
With the proper resources, Jim Oberweis can unseat Lauren Underwood and win back a Congressional seat that should not be occupied by a progressive liberal who is in lock-step with the radical left and shares the same extreme agenda as Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Ilhan Omar.
