Yesterday, the Casten campaign released their second ad of the general election, highlighting Sean Casten's background as a clean energy entrepreneur creating jobs in the Sixth Congressional District. Casten released the following statement:
"I am proud of my background creating hundreds of jobs while fighting climate change," said Casten. "Peter Roskam has spent 25 years in public office, but can't run on his own reputation. Instead, his ads just resort to throwing mud and distorting my record. Now, thanks to over 75,000 individual donors we can share the truth about my record of protecting our environment and putting people to work."
The campaign said the new Casten ad would be seen on TV systems and digital platforms across the 6th District, and that the campaign would continue to communicate through the rest of the election.
So far in the general election, Roskam and his allies have spent millions of dollars on mailings, TV and digital ads. Despite that investment, three different organizations that predict the outcomes of congressional races have moved the Illinois 6th District race from "leans Republican" to "toss up" and a "DEM gain."
