AAN Launches $200,000 Campaign Supporting John Shimkus

WASHINGTON – The American Action Network (@AAN) today launched an independent expenditure ad campaign supporting Congressman John Shimkus in Illinois’ 15th congressional district primary. Highlighting Shimkus’ strong conservative voice, the ad campaign will ensure Illinois primary voters know he is the principled fighter they need in Congress.

Shimkus’ conservative leadership includes fighting to dismantle Obamacare, standing up for 2nd Amendment rights, and defending the right to life. Shimkus is endorsed by the National Rifle Association, National Right to Life, and other conservative organizations.

AAN’s $200,000 independent expenditure campaign includes broadcast and cable television buys running through the March 15 primary election day in five district media markets as well as digital advertising and GOTV phone calls.

“Our country needs strong leaders – fortunately we have conservatives like John Shimkus willing to step up,” said AAN President Mike Shields. “John Shimkus is willing to take on the tough fights like dismantling Obamacare, protecting gun rights and fighting for conservative values.”


In times of trouble, America needs strength.

John Shimkus is a strong conservative voice, fighting back against Barack Obama’s liberal agenda.

Shimkus will dismantle ObamaCare to lower costs for families.

Endorsed by National Right to Life, Shimkus will defund Planned Parenthood.

And the NRA has endorsed Shimkus too because he’ll protect our Second Amendment rights. Always.

John Shimkus: Strong. Conservative.
