Rodney urges Londrigan to join him in calling on Madigan to resign immediately as House Speaker and DPI Chairman

Taylorville, IL – Voters in the 13th Congressional District have a clear choice when it comes to voting for a candidate for Congress who will stand up to Speaker Mike Madigan’s corruption. Rodney Davis opposes Madigan’s corruption and has called on Madigan to resign immediately. Betsy Londrigan has taken the opposite approach. She’s raising campaign cash for Madigan as he’s implicated in a $1.3 million bribery scheme and her campaign is working hand-in-hand with Madigan’s political organization.

“The difference between Rodney Davis and Betsy Londrigan could not be clearer on the issue of standing up to Mike Madigan’s corruption. Rodney has spoken out against Madigan’s corruption and has called on him to resign from office immediately. Meanwhile, Londrigan continues to raise campaign cash for Madigan to this day, and her campaign works hand-in-hand with Madigan’s political organization. Voters in IL-13 will remember Londrigan’s enabling of Madigan’s corruption when they cast their ballots in this election.” – Aaron DeGroot, Davis campaign spokesperson
