Schaumburg, IL – The race for Congress in Illinois’s 8th Congressional District has been decided, and Republican candidate Chris Dargis has called Congressman Raja Krishnamoorthi to concede the race. Chris’s message of service to his community, delivering real solutions to the problems we face, and putting people over politics resonated with the electorate, but ultimately fell short of victory.

Candidate Dargis released the following statement: 

“First and foremost, I would like to thank my loving family, all of my supporters, and the people of the 8th District for putting your faith in me to represent our community in Washington DC. This result in no way means we will stop working to deliver solutions for our communities, bring down the cost of living, and keep our streets safe. Although I will not personally be a part of the new Republican House majority, I know that the changing leadership in Congress will help accomplish those goals, particularly for the families of the 8th District. Congratulations to Raja Krishnamoorthi on his victory, and I hope you will lend your ear to your constituents to help address the problems that are impacting their daily lives.”
