Radical Republican Esther Joy King Gets Second Democratic Challenger for Her Second Failed Campaign

Failed candidate Esther Joy King's second campaign just might be off to an even worse start than her first.

As a second Democratic challenger emerges in just the past two weeks alone, King is most definitely feeling the heat. Northwest Illinois voters have already rejected Washington Republicans' handpicked candidate at the ballot box once before. Now, as challengers line up to take her on, King will have no choice but to face the same Northwest Illinoisans who already know that she does not share their values.

Rather than continuing to dodge questions about her radical agenda, Esther Joy King owes Illinoisans answers. King has still yet to comment on whether or not she agrees with Donald Trump, the number two House Republican Steve Scalise, and extremist Washington Republicans that the 2020 election was stolen. But no matter how hard she tries, King won't be able to dodge IL-17 voters next November when they deliver her yet another loss.

DCCC spokesperson Elena Kuhn:

"While Esther Joy King continues to dodge Northwest Illinoisans, Democratic challengers are lining up to hand her yet another defeat. We can hardly blame her - with such an extreme, out-of-touch agenda, it's no wonder that King would be afraid to face the same Illinoisans that have already rejected her once before."
