About this Article

The only locally-based SuperPAC in the 8th District Congressional race is Credo SuperPAC, which has set up shop in Elk Grove Village. It has spent less than $165,000 so far, new media director Eric Ming said, and is emphasizing a "grass-roots effort" centered around phone banking and neighborhood canvassing.
