Should Congressman Adam Kinzinger be forced to run for U.S. Senate if his House district eliminated at congressional remap, could Piton become Trump’s guy to defeat Kinzinger in possible U.S. Senate primary?
After being ejected from the Kane County Board’s Public Service Committee meeting last Thursday, within 72 hours in an admittedly last minute trip, U.S. Senate candidate Bobby Piton (R, Geneva) attended President Trump’s rally in Arizona, hosted by Turning Point USA.
Piton, who in mid January received a handwritten 45th birthday card from then-President Trump, may be positioned as the Trump-endorsed candidate for U.S. Senate, especially if Congressman Adam Kinzinger (R, IL-16) runs for U.S. Senate in the event Illinois Democrats eliminate the current IL-16 Congressional District.
(While many believe McHenry County’s Catalina Lauf is the preferred candidate of President Trump against Kinzinger in a House Republican primary, Lauf is ineligible to run for U.S. Senate due to her sub-30 age)
Here is the nearly 4 1/2 minute video, recorded by Liz Harris, candidate for the Arizona Legislature:
