"Democrat Sean Casten declares victory over U.S. Rep. Peter Roskam in pivotal 6th Congressional District"

Wynn and I worked hard to defeat Roskam. We attended candidate forums and "meet and greets". We put our money where our mouths were. We both phone banked for the Casten campaign and Wynn canvassed nearly every weekend in the months preceding election day. Roskam voted 60 times against protections for Americans with pre-existing conditions - and we needed him out.
