Today, Colin Milligan, the Communications Director for Cheri Bustos for Congress, released the following statement on ex-Congressman Bobby Schilling’s first television ad: 

“Bobby Schilling's first ad is a blatant attempt to hide the 'Real Bobby Schilling's' record of putting the Tea Party first and Illinois middle class families last.  In Congress, Schilling voted to protect tax breaks for corporations that ship jobs overseas, to end the Medicare guarantee for seniors and walked out of a public meeting with workers whose jobs were shipped to China.  Now he's making a six figure salary working for one of his campaign contributors helping wealthy Chinese businessmen game the immigration system.  If this is what he means by 'leading by example' Illinois working families will reject him once again this November.”
