BREWYN, Ill. (WEEK) — U.S. Senator Dick Durbin will have a challenger in the upcoming 2020 election.
On Tuesday, Republican Robert Marshall announced his bid to become the next U.S. Senator from Illinois.
In a release, Marshall says he privately practices radiology, doing so since 1984 after years serving as an Assistant Director of Radiology at MacNeal Hosptial.
He is also a Vietnam War veteran.
“I am running for the United States Senate because we need someone with a public service background that will bring Health Care expertise that will bring solutions that will be pro-tax payer and be centered on the patient but we also need someone who will support President Trump’s fight to secure our border, fight for fiscal responsibility, and make the American taxpayer the top priority,” Marshall says.
Marshall’s statement says he has been a member of the Burr Ridge Board of Trustees, board of director for the PAV YMCA in Berwyn, and participant for the Burr Ridge/Willowbrook Chamber of Commerce and the Berwyn Development Corporation.
“I look forward to sharing my vision in the Illinois Republican Primary on how to best grow the Republican Party in Illinois and beat Dick Durbin to bring a much needed Conservative voice in Illinois,” said Marshall.
