Democratic candidate for attorney general Kwame Raoul joined Congressman John Lewis (D-GA) and Brendan Kelly, candidate in Illinois’ 12th Congressional District, for a get-out-the-vote rally in East St. Louis, IL on Tuesday, Oct. 16.
Lewis, a leader in the Civil Rights Movement who continues to advocate for equality and voting rights, spoke about the high stakes in this year’s midterm elections and why it is so important for citizens to exercise their civic duty.
“Congressman Lewis is one of our nation’s foremost living heroes, and there is no better voice to communicate the importance of voting, the sacrifices that have been made for the right to vote, and what’s at stake in this election,” Raoul said. “It’s an honor to stand today with him and Brendan Kelly, who is ready to get to work representing Southern Illinois. As attorney general, I will fight every day to defend our rights, our values and the rule of law, and to vindicate the faith voters put in our democracy through the transformative act of going to the polls and casting a ballot.”Go Back
