Waukegan, IL – U.S. Senator Dick Durbin has endorsed Eric Rinehart for Lake County State’s Attorney. Last week, the Lake County’s Congressional Delegation, Casten (IL-06), Schneider (IL-10), and Underwood (IL-14) endorsed Rinehart for State’s Attorney

“In Lake County, there is an important race that we need to pay more attention to. In Eric Rinehart, we have an opportunity to elect a State’s Attorney who understands that we can keep our families safe while working towards a justice system that treats everyone fairly. The residents of Lake County deserve a State’s Attorney’s office that will be transparent, fights corruption, and is committed to investing in long-term solutions. Eric is an impressive candidate that brings vision and energy to this important office. I wholeheartedly endorse him,” said U.S. Senator Dick Durbin.

“Senator Durbin’s endorsement means a lot to me. During these challenging times, I am grateful that Senator Durbin is in Washington fighting for our rights to vote while President Trump is actively using his office to suppress voters. Now, more than ever, we need to come together as a community to ensure that the Lake County State’s Attorney office serves all, every day; this is why I am running,” said Eric Rinehart.
