Philanise White


I ran for congress in 2020 to give the voters of  Illinois’ 1st Congressional District a New Choice a Better Way! I made a BOLD move against all odds and won over the voters of Will County by winning with 62% of the votes cast! And, that was achieved with the support of ALL voters, not just registered republicans! And in the southern municipalities of Cook County, I was able to secure 42% of the overall votes casted!  I am solely responsible for the incumbent’s retirement, leaving the field open to opportunists that were too afraid to challenge the machine! 

This time, I’m in it to win it! Help me get the job done! No more democrat strong holds that occupy government offices with “do nothing” policies dictated by unelected special interests groups!  Send me to Washington as YOUR congressional representative! Let’s work together to restore the United States back to the Constitutional Republic that works for, of and by the people!
