This came out yesterday, but here it is - from the Dold Campaign:
Former Illinois 10th District Congressman John Edward Porter Endorses Dold
Winnetka, IL – Today, former Illinois 10th District Congressman John Edward Porter announced his endorsement of Robert Dold for the Congressional seat Porter held for twenty years.
“Robert Dold is an independent Republican who mirrors the values of the 10th District,” said Porter. “He will be a voice for common-sense, small business thinking, with a moderate stance on social issues such as choice and the environment.”
Porter noted recent endorsements by the National Federation of Independent Business and the Republican Majority for Choice in announcing his endorsement of Dold.
“I am honored to receive the endorsement of John Porter,” said Dold. “John served our District honorably for many years and shares my pro-choice position. It is a tradition of fiscally conservative, socially moderate leadership that I will continue in Washington.”
“The 10th district voters are very educated on the issues and look for a Congressman who will vote the conscience of the district, rather than straight for the party,” said Porter. “Robert Dold will be the independent and thoughtful voice that 10th district voters want.”
Porter served in Congress from 1980 to 2001. Since leaving office, he has served as a Washington partner in the international law firm, Hogan Lovells. He is Chairman of Research America, Vice Chairman of the Foundation for the National Institutes of Health, and a trustee of The Brookings Institution. He recently completed a two-year term as Chairman of PBS.
