He’s a political newcomer who is starting out with one of the biggest challenges an Illinois Republican can face… going up against Democratic U.S. Senator Dick Durbin.
But Downers Grove businessman Doug Truax says he likes being in the role of the underdog. Truax has kicked off his campaign against Durbin, the number-two Senate Democrat who is seeking his fourth term in the job.
Durbin won his last re-election campaign with nearly 70-percent of the vote. But Truax says Durbin represents failed policies that are inhibiting economic recovery and ”decimating” the middle class.
