Kinzinger Declares Victory In 16th Congressional District
Republican Congressman Adam Kinzinger declared victory Tuesday night to keep his seat in Illinois’ 16th district. Kinzinger told reporters during a virtual call that one factor that may have helped with voters was “authenticity.”
“Whether they agree with every decision I make or not, I think there’s a lot of people that respect the fact that they know that I believe what I’m saying, and it’s not out to defend a party or anything along that line,” Kinzinger said.
Despite the results, Democratic challenger Dani Brzozowski thanked her supporters for their efforts at voter outreach.
“Our success here is a testament to the power of every single one of you investing in this race in the incredible, zealous, dedicated, and creative ways that you have. We talked to 350,000 voters directly,” Brzozowski said.
Kinzinger has held the position since 2012.
