Press release submitted by Bobby Schilling for Congress |
Hare refuses to release poll results
Schilling says no benefit in hiding good polls
EAST MOLINE, IL--Bobby Schilling, Republican candidate for Congress in the IL-17 District, re-issued a challenge to Rep. Phil Hare to release the results of two polls, conducted in February on the 12th and 19th, during the first quarter, within the next 24 hours. According to the Federal Election Commission, Friends of Phil Hare spent $30,000 on these two polls. Schilling said that since Hare has refused to release the polling, he takes it as a clear sign the results were "unfavorable to say the least."
"If Rep. Hare is so pleased with the results, then he should release them," said Schilling. "There is no benefit in hiding good poll results. I don't have to take a poll to know that taxpayers are against Phil Hare's reckless spending of our hard-earned money in Washington. Hare has obviously become numb to spending other people's money with nothing to show for it. Congressman Hare should still release the results of the poll, especially in regard to healthcare and cap and tax."
Schilling, a native of Rock Island, graduated from Alleman High School and attended Black Hawk College. Schilling, a local business owner and father of ten children, is the Republican candidate for the 17th Congressional District in Illinois. Bobby is running on a platform of bringing jobs and real representation back to the 17th District. Earlier this year, Schilling conducted a 34-city "Bob's for Jobs" tour, where he met with voters and employers all across the 17th District.
