2012 General Election Endorsements for the Illinois State Legislature

Date: 
09/19/2012

Each election cycle, Citizen Action’s political action committee convenes to make endorsements for public office.  Candidates who wish to be endorsed by the organization are required to complete a questionnaire which outlines the broad policy positions taken by Citizen Action/Illinois.  In the case of incumbents, Citizen Action will also consider their score on our Legislative Scorecard (click here for Citizen Action/Illinois 2012 Illinois Legislature Scorecard).  In order to receive an endorsement, a candidate must have 60% of the votes cast by the committee.

The following candidates have been endorsed in the November election (as of September  14, 2012).
