Democrat Dan Lipinski Not Endorsing Obama
According to Medill Reports, Illinois' 3rd Congressional District representative is not making any public presidential endorsement for this November's election.
The Democratic congressman has represented Illinois' 3rd Congressional District, which covers much of the southwest suburbs, since 2005.
As Medill Reports states, Lipinski has not been a rank-and-file Democrat in recent years.
The Catholic congressman condemned the requirement pushed by the Obama administration that religious organizations need to provide contraception as a part of employee health plans, TribLocal reported in January, and Lipinski was the lone Democratic Illinois congressperson to vote against the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) in 2010.
Lipinski is being challenged by Republican Richard Grabowski in the Nov. 6 election.
