Jim Carris Files Petitions to Run for Congress

Lake Forest, IL – Jim Carris (R-Lake Forest) today filed his petitions in his run for Congress as a Republican in Illinois’ 10th Congressional District, which consists of Chicago’s north and northwest suburbs, including Lake and portions of Cook and McHenry Counties.

“The overwhelming support that my campaign has received in the 3 months since announcing my candidacy has been humbling,” said Carris. “It is clear that the families of the 10th Congressional District are hungry for a new leader that will be independent and work in a bipartisan manner to find real policy solutions for Americans based on logic, compassion, and common sense.”

Following Carris’ announcement of his candidacy on September 6th, the campaign raised $200,000 in just 24 days before the third quarter reporting deadline. In addition to financial support, the  campaign has also amassed dozens of volunteers throughout the district that assisted in gathering hundreds of signatures to secure a spot on the ballot.
