Kasten, Peckau meeting at same site in Oak Brook as District 6 race

OAK BROOK, Ill. – With four days to go until election night in the 6th Congressional District, it’s all over.

Incumbent Illinois Rep. Sean Kasten and Orland Park Mayor Keith Pekau, who switched from Republican to Democrat in 2018 for the first time in 50 years, are facing off. However, with the redrawing of the boundary lines, things can turn again.

Both candidates have received strong support in recent days.

Last week, Kasten appeared at a forum on reproductive health alongside House Speaker Nancy Pelosi. Senator Dick Durbin joined Kasten at a community town hall in Oak Brook on Friday night.

Down the hall at the Hyatt Lodge in the same building, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy took to the podium to speak for Peckau.

Issues that Kasten and Peckau share include abortion, the SAFE-T Act and rising inflation.

Voters and volunteers from both sides weighed in.

“Everybody wants to feel represented, and sometimes we don’t,” said Eric Nelson, who runs Republican with his wife, Lisa. Both say they have found high support.

“We were knocking on the door [Pekau] in areas where you might expect it to be blue, Lisa Nelson said. “We see a lot of people saying, ‘You have my vote, you have my vote.’

Diane Roddy says she’s doing her part for Kasten.

“What I like about Sean is that he’s hands-on. He thinks using data, and as a retired scientist, I do the same,” Roddy said.
