Will County Board member Rachel Ventura of Joliet officially launched her campaign to unseat incumbent Bill Foster of Naperville for the 2020 primary election.

The newcomer echoed many progressive policies that were part of her agenda such as “Medicare for all” single-payer health insurance, the passage of the Green New Deal and comprehensive immigration reform.

During her annoucement, she indicated “America does not need nor want transactional politics, nor pay-to-play politicians. We want our voices to be heard and represented.”

Bill Foster has quietly responded by listing his endorsements which include eight Democrats who serve on the Will County Board with Ventura, Will County Executive Larry Walsh, and several state legislators.
