Adam Kinzinger Endorsed

Adam Kinzinger

Running for the Office of Representative from Illinois’ 6th Congressional District.

Game Changer PAC has Endorsed Adam Kinzinger for Illinois’ 16th Congressional District.

For years Adam has fought for the people’s priorities—Opposing pay raises for elected officials; Fighting against taxes on small businesses; And, supporting measures for increased transparency and public participation in government. Game Changer PAC likes this very much. Trying to get the public more involved in government is generally something that elected officials only do when it is campaign time. It is very refreshing to see someone that wants more than just votes from his constituents.

After serving as a County Supervisor for five years, Kinzinger joined the United States Air Force. He was commissioned a 2nd Lieutenant in November 2003 and later awarded his pilot wings. He has served in the Air Force Special Operations, Air Combat Command, Air Mobility Command, and Air National Guard. He has the current rank of Major.

Kinzinger continues to serve his country as a pilot in the Air National Guard as a Member of Congress.

Kinzinger has been recognized for his civic service both in and out of uniform.

In 2007, he received the United States Air Force Airman’s Medal for saving the life of a young woman whom was violently attacked. He wrestled the knife away from the attacker and pinned him to the ground until the police arrived. He was also awarded the National Guard’s Valley Forge Cross for Heroism and was selected as the Southeastern Wisconsin American Red Cross Hero of the Year.

Kinzinger has earned the Air Medal six times serving in Operations Enduring Freedom and Iraqi Freedom.
