The gridlock which has crippled Washington during the last several years has been caused by politicians, most notably in the House of Representatives, who represent special interests on both sides of the political spectrum and who refuse to come to a consensus and move forward with programs to benefit our nation. Bob Dold signed Grover Norquist’s pledge and has therefore made a contract with the Tea Party not to agree to any of the sensible liberal policies which represent the interests of the 99% of us in the 10th district. In fact he voted almost every time with the special interests of his party. He voted against …

Congressman addresses group in Glenview hours after casting vote to cut $60 billion in federal spending.
A passionate group of more than 60 people came to U.S Rep. Bob Dold’s (R-IL) town hall meeting at Glenview Village Hall on Saturday to hear what their congressman had to say about his first six weeks in Washington. The citizens wanted to hear Dold’s ideas and express their own. Some of the participants argued with each other while the first-term congressman acted as the peacemaker. Most had the economy and budget as their top priorities, and there were a myriad of suggestions to improve the situation. Dold was poised to discuss the issue after voting to cut $60 billion from the current federal budget just seven and a half hours before the meeting began. He cast his vote about 3:30 a.m. (CST) on the floor of the House. “We had to go back…

With 484 of 511 precincts reporting, Dold won the race to replace Mark Kirk as the representative of the 10th congressional district.
Almost six hours after supporters and campaign volunteers started to gather at Bob Dold's campaign headquarters in Winnetka, Dold made his first public appearance as one of the newest members of the U.S. House of Representatives. Dold, a Republican, will fill the seat vacated by Mark Kirk, who was elected to the U.S. Senate tonight in a race against Alexi Giannoulias. Sitting through a tight race all day, Dold was unable to have a talk with his opponent, Dan Seals, before he gave his concluding speech. "I certainly would liked to have had a conversation with Dan [Seals]," Dold said. "I take my hat off to him." Seals didn't take the stage at his campaign's election night event in Deerfield until well after midnight, but most of his …
