Glenview, IL --- Resident of Libertyville and father of three, Mark Curran, today received the endorsement of Northfield Township Republican Organization.

“Curran’s bold statement against the progressive income tax saying, ‘people are leaving Illinois because the government spends and taxes them more than they can afford,’ align with the worries the residents in Northfield, Glenview, Deerfield, Prospect Heights, Des Plaines and Wilmette share,” committeeman T.J. Brown said. “His background as a lawyer and a police officer demonstrates a solid foundational understanding of law and order.”

Curran remarked, I am running for U.S. Senate in 2020 because our faith, our freedoms and our values are under assault from establishment elites including political dinosaur IL- D Sen Dick Durbin, who once said he believes the Constitution is ‘fatally flawed.’  Yet, when Term Limits legislation was on the table in 2012 Durbin refused to support Term Limits, saying it was ‘unconstitutional.’ The constitution is his rag doll. I am running because America is worth fighting for. I have made a career in law and order spanning decades and my focus was always keeping Americans safe and upholding the Constitution. I made it my life mission to fight for the middle class and the disenfranchised. I will be a strong voice for faith, family & freedom and fighting for those dealing with poverty in our country by lifting them out through education and job opportunities they may find currently unattainable. I think everyone has the right to live freely, be safe and have opportunities. We Americans should be encouraging one another to aim to be a contributing asset to our country.”
