A Chicago TV report is raising questions about where exactly U.S. Senate candidate Jim Oberweis calls home.
Oberweis is spending this final week before the GOP primary in Florida, where his wife maintains a residence. But WMAQ in Chicago says Oberweis has listed that Florida condo as his family’s primary residence.
Oberweis had previously listed his suburban Chicago home as the family’s primary residence… but no longer does so. Florida provides homeowners with a much larger “homestead exemption,” potentially saving Oberweis tens of thousands of dollars in taxes.
His GOP opponent Doug Truax says Illinoisans deserve a candidate who is committed to Illinois… not going out-of-state to avoid taxes.
