U.S. Senate Candidate Jim Oberweis Visits TMA

(Park Ridge, IL)-The Technology & Manufacturing Association of Illinois (TMA) hosted State Senator Jim Oberweis, Republican nominee for U.S. Senate, at their Breakfast For Business series on July 30th. Upwards of 130 TMA members and guests were on hand to meet Mr. Oberweis and hear his thoughts on running against Senator Dick Durbin. "I know I face an uphill battle, but recent polls have shown the race tightening, " stated Oberweis. "I plan to work hard for the citizens of Illinois and I will support jobs and infrastructure issues including building the Keystone Pipeline."

"It was nice to have State Senator Oberweis with us at TMA stated TMA President Steve Rauschenberger. "So far he has a 100 percent rating with the TMA PAC on votes cast in Springfield. We look forward to working with him in Washington as well" he added.

About TMA: 8 small manufacturing companies who thought they could better themselves by associating with one another founded TMA in 1925.
