PTDO voted not to make an endorsement for Representative in Congress for the 8th Congressional District. The vote was closely divided between candidates Raja Krishnamoorthi and Tammy Duckworth, and the membership believed that either candidate would be an excellent representative of the 8th District.
Judicial endorsements will be made by the PTDO Executive Committee after the various bar and associations have made their recommendations.
The Palatine Township Democratic Organization is a all-volunteer organization comprised of Democratic and Independent voters committed to electing qualified candidates to national, state, county and local office.
