Ex-Rep. Melissa Bean Backing Businessman Versus Robert Dold

Ex-Rep. Melissa Bean (D-Ill.) has thrown her support behind businessman Brad Schneider’s (D) bid for freshman Rep. Robert Dold’s (R) 10th district seat.

“During my time in Congress, I came to know and appreciate Brad for his thoughtful insight and leadership,” Bean said.

Schneider is one of a few Democrats seeking the nomination, including former MoveOn.org organizer Ilya Sheyman and Air Force Reserve Col. John Tree.

Bean also hosted a fundraiser for Schneider. The former three-term Congresswoman represented the neighboring 8th district until she narrowly lost to Rep. Joe Walsh (R) last year. Roll Call rates this district as Leans Democratic.
