Washington, D.C. – Speaker Nancy Pelosi issued this statement on the result of Illinois’s Sixth Congressional District primary election:
“Congresswoman Marie Newman is a proud progressive in the Congress, who has brought energetic leadership to our Caucus. On behalf of House Democrats, we thank her for her patriotic public service and will sincerely miss her voice in the House.
“Congresswoman Newman has fought tirelessly for working families in her community. On the Transportation and Infrastructure Committee, her passion for sustainable infrastructure helped strengthen our Bipartisan Infrastructure Law, which is helping build cleaner communities across the country. As a small business owner, she has been a respected voice on the Small Business Committee: helping lead on House-passed legislation to make microloan applications quicker and easier. Our Caucus salutes Congresswoman Newman’s leadership to end the scourge of bullying for our children – especially on behalf of our LGBTQ youth.
“Congressman Sean Casten is an unrelenting champion in the fight against the climate crisis, who has fought every day to protect our planet For The Children. Our House Democratic Caucus looks forward to his continued leadership in the Congress.”
