Rep. Kinzinger Declines To Elaborate On Presidential Vote


Northern Illinois Congressman Adam Kinzinger declined to elaborate on his presidential vote.   

The Republican visited Illinois Valley Community College yesterday to host his fourth-annual Youth Leadership Summit. The Ottawa Timesreports he didn’t vote for Clinton or Trump, but declined to mention his specific choice, citing the secret ballot. 

Kinzinger avoided endorsing Trump in the primaries and general election, particularly after the latter questioned the need for NATO.  However, he said he stayed up until 2AM watching election results, and is optimistic about a Trump presidency.  Kinzinger faced no electoral opposition.
