U.S. Rep. Bobby Schilling, R-Colona, and Republican state senate candidate Bill Albracht launched the "Veterans for Bobby" coalition on Monday.|
The coalition will support Rep. Schilling's re-election campaign and is being led by Mr. Albracht, a retired U.S. Army captain who is running for the seat now held by state Sen. Mike Jacobs, D-East Moline.
Rep. Schilling and Mr. Albracht were joined by a small group of veterans for the launch of the group at Lincoln Park, Rock Island.
"I'm honored to have the backing of this group of veterans," Rep. Schilling said. "This coalition represents a great group of heroes who have nobly served this great nation that we all love. I'm humbled to have their support."
East Moline Democrat Cheri Bustos is running against Rep. Schilling in the Nov. 6 general election.
