Glenview, IL --- LTC Sargis Sangari, USA (Ret.), resident of Skokie, received the endorsement of the Northfield Township Republican Organization today.


Committeeman TJ Brown recently spoke about LTC Sangari, explaining that “Sargis is the embodiment of what America is all about. He has dedicated his life to serving the people of the United States, and his desire to run for office is just another example of how he is putting country over self. He is a truly remarkable American and public servant.”


In response to the endorsement, LTC Sangari said that “I am incredibly thankful to the Northfield GOP for their endorsement in my journey to Washington. The United States has welcomed me with open arms, and I believe it is my duty to give back to a country that has given me so much. I pledge to advocate and be a voice for the great citizens of Illinois’s 9th Congressional District, and I would be very grateful for the privilege of serving the people of Illinois. The country desperately needs decent, reasonable, service-oriented Americans championing common-sense reform in Congress, and that is exactly what I aim to do.”
