Illinois Democrat U.S. Senator Dick Durbin’s opponent in the fall State Senator Jim Oberweis, says Durbin is a “thug and a bully” who hasn't done much to improve the quality of life in Illinois since his last election. Oberweis says he'll keep the peoples' needs first if he's given a shot to replace Durbin.
He says his main priorities are to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act, simplify the tax code, work to implement term limits at the congressional level, and get a balanced budget.
