Congressman Kinzinger Announces Plans for Next Chapter

WASHINGTON, DC – Today, Congressman Adam Kinzinger (R-IL) released a video titled "The Next Chapter” to share the following message:

"This country is facing an incredibly perilous time.  I have always been optimistic, using history as our story to show how we would overcome any obstacle.  In bad moments, someone has always stepped up to lead. Government for, of, and by the people always prevails.  Right now, that government is the problem.  And few have risen to do anything about it, because in this day to prevail or survive you must belong to a tribe.

I’ve witnessed how division is heavily rooted.  There’s little to no desire to bridge our differences, and unity is no longer a word we use. It has also become increasingly obvious to me that in order to break the narrative, I cannot focus both on a re-election to Congress and a broader fight nationwide.

As a country, we need to remember who we really are, what we’ve achieved in our darker days and why we’ve always fought for a brighter future. I know I’m not alone—there are many Americans desperately searching for a better way. They want solutions, not more problems. They want action, not extremism. They want light, not darkness. And the sooner we do it, the better it will be for the land that we love. Now is the time to put Country First."
