Springfield, Illinois – Americans for Prosperity Action-Illinois today endorsed Jesse Reising in his campaign to represent the people of the Illinois 13th Congressional District in the U.S. House of Representatives.
AFP Action will leverage a wide range of tactics, including the country’s largest grassroots outreach and mobilization, a full-time dedicated staff, and trained volunteers to educate and mobilize voters to support Reising’s campaign.
“Jesse Reising will bring a wealth of experience to the U.S. Congress,” said AFP Action-IL Senior Advisor Jason Heffley. “When a college football injury sidetracked his plans to serve in the U.S. Marine Corps, Reising went to Afghanistan as a civilian contractor to support our U.S. troops. His support for our military did not stop there. Upon his return, he established a non-profit organization that helps veterans transition from military services to college students.
“In Congress, Reising will be a champion for Illinois taxpayers, working to lower taxes, curb harmful and unnecessary regulations, and reduce the out-of-control government spending that drives inflation and makes life difficult for everyday Americans,” said Heffley. “He will help get the government out of the way to empower parents with greater choice when it comes to their children’s education. And he will be a strong voice for our nation’s veterans on issues such as expanding veteran health care options.
“Jesse Reising is the type of congressional candidate that AFP Action volunteers want to support, and they’ll be out in force working for his election,” he said.
During the 2020 election cycle, AFP Action supported candidates nationwide with more than 8.5 million telephone calls, 1.5 million door knocks, and more than 49 million pieces of mail. AFP Action has unmatched direct voter outreach capability that is supported by a world-class data operation.
AFP Action is a 527 political action committee focused on electing candidates who will drive policy change and facilitate the building of broad policy coalitions that remove barriers to opportunity and help people improve their lives. The organization has a strong, permanent grassroots presence, including highly motivated activists who volunteer during the election season by making telephone calls and knocking on doors in support of policy champions.
