"On This Road Together"

Schilling campaign releases first commercial of the 2014 election cycle

EAST MOLINE, Ill.—The Bobby Schilling for Congress campaign has released their first commercial of 2014: "On This Road Together." The introduction spot is now airing in Peoria, Rockford, and the Quad Cities.

Click here to view the commercial.

Bobby Schilling (R-Colona) was born and raised in Rock Island, Illinois. He has been married to his wife, Christie for 28 years and together they have 10 children. Schilling represented the Illinois 17th District in the U.S. House of Representatives from 2011-2012, serving on the House Armed Services Committee, the House Agriculture Committee, and the House Small Business Committee. Schilling is seeking another term and is running against incumbent Congresswoman Cheri Bustos.

Rep. Bustos has nothing positive to say about her record in Congress, so she is desperately attacking a job-creation program she previously supported

Is this really her game plan up to Election Day?

EAST MOLINE, Ill.—It's not everyday you see a congressional candidate go into full blown meltdown mode, but Congresswoman Cheri Bustos (D-East Moline) is reaching that point with her recent attacks against Bobby Schilling (R-Colona), CMB Regional Centers in Rock Island, and the EB-5 job creation program.

Bustos co-sponsored a bill in January that would make EB-5 program permanent

Clumsy attempt to change subject backfires

Bustos campaign melting down in desperate bid to divert attention away from Bustos' broken promise to give back 10 percent of her salary

EAST MOLINE, Ill.—Congresswoman Cheri Bustos (D-East Moline) lashed out mindlessly today by attacking Bobby Schilling (R-Colona) for supposedly "selling visas." The EB-5 program that Bobby Schilling's employer, CMB Regional Centers, operates under is renewed by Congress every three years, and this past January, Congresswoman Cheri Bustos co-sponsored legislation to make the EB-5 program permanent. How's that for hypocrisy?

Congresswoman Bustos promised to give up 10 percent of her salary if elected to Congress

Will she pay up?

If Bustos is not willing to keep her word on a simple campaign promise, how are voters supposed to trust her on anything?

It has been a rough week for Congresswoman Cheri Bustos, whose campaign has repeatedly claimed she "misspoke" when she promised the Chicago Tribune she would give up 10 percent of her pay if elected to Congress. It appears that Bustos has no intention of following through on her promise.
