The Conservative Solution for Southern Illinois Families

The Conservative Solution for Southern Illinois Families

Blaine is not a career politician. As a job creator himself, he knows how the Springfield politicians have failed us. He is running for office to fight Mike Madigan and his special interests, liberal Chicago values, and anti-reform agenda. Blaine will always put Southern Illinois families first.

  • Repeal the 32% Madigan tax increase
  • Rein in government spending
    and balance the budget
  • Stand up for our 2nd Amendment Rights
  • Replace Madigan by enacting term limits
  • Reduce taxes and empower businesses
    to create jobs
  • Fight for the life of the unborn
