Congresswoman Lauren Underwood Announces New Farm Team Pac Endorsements

Underwood’s Farm Team PAC has endorsed 27 exceptional candidates for state & local office in Northern Illinois 


ST. CHARLES, IL — Congresswoman Lauren Underwood today announced her support for nine new candidates under her political action committee (PAC), the Farm Team PAC. With today’s announcement, Underwood has endorsed 27 local candidates ahead of the November 3rd General Election.

“Running for office is hard — that’s why I founded the Farm Team PAC,” Congresswoman Underwood said, “I have to admit that, going in, I did not expect to endorse 27 candidates this cycle. But after getting to know so many extraordinary candidates, I knew I needed to step up my efforts and support them. One of the biggest lessons I’ve learned over the past three years is that no one can do this work alone. The Farm Team represents the group of candidates I want on my team as we continue to make progress for northern Illinois.”

Underwood today announced her support for the following candidates:

  • Amy Chavez, DuPage County Board, District 5
  • Jeffrey Jacobson, DuPage County Circuit Court
  • Azam Nizamuddin, DuPage County Circuit Court
  • Barbara O’Meara, DuPage County Forest Preserve, District 5
  • Jeannie Ridings, McHenry County Circuit Court
  • Dr. Brian Sager, Illinois State House, District 63
  • Greg Schwarze, DuPage County Board, District 6
  • Marci Suelzer, Illinois State House, District 52
  • Chase Thomas, Lake County Board, District 1
