Kinzinger ‘humbled’ by re-election to Congress for Illinois’ 16th District

WILL COUNTY – Incumbent Congressman Adam Kinzinger (R) took to Facebook overnight, announcing he was humbled  by voters in a re-election bid to represent Illinois’ 16th District in Congress.

Kinzinger defeated challenger Dani Brzozowski (D) in Will County by 5,926 votes, with 10,172 cast for the incumbent Kinzinger and 4,246 received for Brzozowski.

“First and foremost, I want to say thank you.” Kinzinger said in a statement released last night.  “Thank you to everyone who voted and thank you for the opportunity to be your voice in Washington. I’m humbled by this overwhelming victory tonight and proudly accept this re-election as the U.S. House Representative for Illinois’ 16th Congressional District. It’s truly an honor and a privilege to serve my community and my country, and I’m ready to help move us forward–as a district and as a nation.

Kinzinger added he will work with both sides of the aisle to put American families first while holding ‘bad actors’ in China responsible for the COVID-19 outbreak.

“As your Congressman, I will continue to work with my colleagues on both sides of the aisle to put the immediate needs of American families first and ensure we hold bad actors like Communist China accountable for their reckless and dangerous actions that led to this deadly COVID-19 outbreak. I will also continue to encourage and engage in a more civil discourse across the board. As a society, we need to find a way to move forward with a greater appreciation for the freedoms we have here.” Kinzinger added.

Illinois’ 16th District represents parts of DeKalb, Ford, Star, Will and Winnebago counties and all of Boone, Bureau, Grundy, Iroquois, LaSalle, Lee, Livingston, Ogle, and Putnam counties. The District also represents all or parts of Belvidere, Channahon, DeKalb, Dixon, Loves Park, Machensey Park, Ottawa, Morris, Pontiac, Rockford and Streator.
