In-studio as part of panel with Candace Owens in Tennessee to DC event featuring Senator Marco Rubio to event this coming Thursday in Baltimore, Lauf gears up for Kinzinger challenge
McHenry County’s Catalina Lauf, Republican candidate in the IL-16 challenging Congressman Adam Kinzinger (R, IL-16) in the March Republican primary, hit the road this past week, plus a new event announced yesterday.
Lauf was part of the panel of the Candace Owens’ broadcast this week, which dropped on The Daily Wire website on Tuesday night. Since Lauf was in-studio, she was in Tennessee for the taping of the show, likely on Monday (it was after Elon Musk’s appearance on Saturday Night Live).
To view the show, the video replay can be accessed here.
Lauf’s next public stop was on Wednesday in the Nation’s Capital, amid the tumult of the early Wednesday morning voice vote to remove Congresswoman Liz Cheney (R, WY At Large) from the House Republican Conference chair position.
At mid-day, Lauf attended the House Republican Study Committee luncheon, and POLITICO‘s Olivia Beavers reported Lauf’s introduction by Committee Chair Jim Banks (R, IN-03), which was a not-so-subtle shot across the bow of Kinzinger:
U.S. Senator Marco Rubio (R, FL) was the guest speaker at Wednesday’s luncheon.
The topic he discussed was covered by the Washington Examiner and can be viewed here.
From the pics online in social media from the event, conservative standouts like Congresswoman Michelle Fischbach (R, MN-07), and Congressmen Madison Cawthorn (R, NC-11) and Byron Donalds (R, FL-19) among others were in attendance for the introduction of Lauf by Chairman Banks.
On Friday morning, congressional candidate Kim Klacik, as president of her Red Renaissance PAC, announced Lauf will be included as part of their public launch in the Baltimore suburbs this coming Thursday night, at the event headlined by keynote speaker Congressman Burgess Owens (R, UT-04).
Should be noted, Owens was backed financially by Lauf’s Defense of Freedom PAC she launched last fall when he successfully flipped UT-04.
It’s unknown if Lauf will be returning to Woodstock this weekend prior to her Baltimore appearance, or if she will continue her tour, combining business travel with political (both private and public appearances) and personal travel, but wherever she goes, Lauf continues to deliver the America First message, and it’s being recognized by the right people.
Lauf’s next scheduled appearances in Illinois are set for the Memorial Day weekend, where she will be featured along with gubernatorial candidate (and fellow McHenry County resident) Gary Rabine (R, Bull Valley) and U.S. Senate candidate Robert Cruz (R, Oak Lawn) at the GOP Jamboree event, headlined by conservative activist Scott Presler on Friday night, May 28.
Presler’s online calendar has him in Rockford the following day, and whether it is an event directly tied to Lauf’s campaign, or separate, one cannot imagine Lauf’s campaign not participating with Presler when he’s in district.
What a way to kick off the summer!
