Press Release – Krishna Bansal announces for Congress to packed room; secures key endorsements

(Bolingbrook)- Saturday, the Krishna Bansal (R-11) campaign for Congress hosted a highly successful launch. Over 200 people were in attendance at the Bolingbrook Golf Club, including more than 20 elected officials.

Krishna Bansal legally immigrated to America with a few hundred dollars and a dream. Two decades later, as a Naperville tech entrepreneur, community leader and philanthropist, Krishna is seeking the Republican nomination for the U.S. House of Representatives. Krishna is grateful to this country for his achievements and wants to make sure that same opportunities, and more, are available to everyone, that contributed to his success. 

Among the many highlights of the event:

US Army Veteran and former State Representative/current 6th District Republican candidate for Congress Jeanne Ives led the Pledge of Allegiance. Later, she would publicly inform the gathering of her endorsement of Krishna’s campaign.

Krishna for Congress Campaign Director, and Wheatland Township Trustee, Raquel Mitchell then sang a stirring and passionate rendition of “God Bless America.”

Mike Reilly, a Naperville Park Board Member, and former Wheatland Township Supervisor, welcomed and rallied the crowd on behalf of the Campaign Co-Chairs.

Former Naperville State Rep., and 2018 Illinois State Comptroller Republican nominee Darlene Senger, told the attendees that this was a winnable race, and that Krishna would win, because she earned over 47 percent five years ago against Bill Foster (D-Naperville). And this year Republicans, Independents, and many Democrats are fired up and ready for change. Ms. Senger is a Co-Chair of the campaign.

Republican National Committeewoman Demetra DeMonte gave the keynote speech, praising the business acumen, community service, leadership, and diversity that Krishna offers. She also announced her enthusiastic endorsement of Krishna. This is a highly coveted support from a leader of national stature.

Krishna’s 17-year-old daughter Deeya shared a touching and heartfelt tribute to her dad and introduced him to the audience.

“I believe in this great nation, its values and its constitution in the entirety. This great nation has given me a lot, made my dream real. Now I want to work to keep this American dream real…for all of us” Krishna stated.  His remarks focused on his major platform policy issues. These are free enterprise, fiscal discipline, family values, and a firm foreign policy. He was interrupted multiple times by applause.

He underscored his commitment for bringing the manufacturing and service jobs back, incentivizing STEM and Trade education, and streamlining the Legal immigration.  As well, he expressed support for term limits and fair maps, that would take federal and state political boundary making out of the hands of the politicians, and give power to a non- partisan and mu lti-partisan entities so that voters can pick politicians rather than politicians picking voters.

Krishna also spoke strongly against the impeachment of President Trump, citing the effort as one sided and partisan, and the overturning of an election without Constitutional grounds.

In a fiery speech near the end of the event Vasavi Chakka announced the formation of a grassroots group “Women for Krishna” to provide volunteer support.

Other key Kick-Off Co-Hosts included rising star Congressman Darin LaHood (R-Peoria), Will County Republican Chairman George Pearson, Kane County Circuit Clerk Tom Hartwell, Kane County Auditor Terry Hunt, and Illinois State Representatives Mark Batinick (R-Plainfield), Grant Wehrli (R-Naperville), and Keith Wheeler (R-Oswego). The strong momentum for Krishna for Congress is gaining daily

Bill Foster’s support for partisan impeachment of President takes focus away from real solutions for America

Bill Foster’s support for partisan impeachment of President takes focus away from real solutions for America

(Aurora)- November 8, 2019
Not surprisingly, every Democrat but two, called recently for the impeachment witch-hunt to continue. And 11th District Congressman Bill Foster was in lockstep with the New York and San Francisco liberals, like Nancy Pelosi, the Speaker he votes for every two years.

With no solid evidence of wrongdoing Foster’s recent statement is full of speculation but no proof. He talks of information “painting a disturbing picture” of Presidential misdeeds.
Picture painting has never been used to convict a person of a crime. It is a parsing of words to make an issue where none really exists.

“That is not what should launch an impeachment investigation,” Republican candidate for Congress Krishna Bansal stated. “There needs to be real evidence, otherwise Foster and the Democrats are just playing politics and wasting money, and distracting from real issues facing our nation.”

Krishna for Congress Campaign representative, Raquel Mitchell, concluded, “Working families and taxpayers are struggling to pay the crushing tax burden, and all the Congressman Foster and the majority in the House can focus on is overturning the results of the 2016 election, in an in democratic way.”

(Aurora)- November 7, 2019

In an effort to take back Illinois’ 11th District from career politicians Bill Foster and Nancy Pelosi, and return it to the people, Krishna Bansal and his team are out working hard. 

The first step is to secure 698 signatures from registered voters and file them by December 2 in Springfield. Volunteers, interns, staff, and the candidate are all collecting signatures. More help is welcome, and the petitions and instructions are available on this web site. 

At the conclusion of the signature campaign, a grand campaign kick-off is scheduled for Saturday, December 7 from 1-3. The theme will be “Honoring Our Veterans and Keeping America First” as we remember the 78th anniversary of Pearl Harbor Day. More details to come and some very special guests will be present. 

“I am excited about the response to our campaign from Republican leaders, local officials, and the grassroots voters, especially independents and Democrats frustrated by the corruption and leftward shift in their party,” Krishna said.

Campaign adviser Nimish Jani said, “This District is ready for change. Bill Foster was first elected 11 years ago this month. It’s time for new ideas and new leaders, not more high taxes and out of control government spending.”
