Governor Rauner Denounces Former Nazi Party Member For Congress
(Springfield, IL) — Illinois Governor Bruce Rauner is condemning the Republican candidate for Congress in one suburban Chicago district. Arthur Jones, who is a former Nazi Party member and a Holocaust denier, is the only candidate on the Republican ticket in Illinois’ Third Congressional District, which is held by Democrat Dan Lipinski. Jones has run for office twice before. This time, he appears to have avoided a primary challenge. Governor Rauner yesterday said there is no room in Illinois politics for neo-Nazis and added that he condemns Jones in the strongest possible terms.
