CANDIDATE FOR Illinois 12th congressional district

  David Bequette is running as a Democrat in the race to represent the people of Illinois' 12th congressional district. David is a United States Marine Corps veteran, lecturer, and non-profit founder who's focused on women's rights, government accountability, and creating jobs in the high tech and renewable energy industries.

  "Over the last two decades the United States has been embroiled in a number of military campaigns, which have resulted in the death of thousands of U.S. troops. As a proud U.S. Marine Corps veteran and supporter of our military, I believe the best way we can support our troops is by keeping them safe, equipping them well to defend the United States, and only utilizing their superior strength through military intervention when it is absolutely necessary and approved by Congress. I will fight to make sure that Congressional approval is an absolute prerequisite for future U.S. military deployments overseas"

  "I will join other congresspersons to end Citizens United, and reform campaign finances. Foreign entities, businesses, and special interests should not be determining our legislative agenda nor be an influence on our congressional decision making. We must place the power in the hands of the people and get money out of politics. Our campaign is committed to this and will never take a single cent from PACs or special interests."
