Cheri Bustos

Cheri Bustos was one of our winning 2012 Run, Mama Run candidates. She’s now fighting to keep her hard-won seat against the well-funded Tea Party Republican she defeated in the last election.

US House of Representatives
Illinois, 17th District

Cheri Bustos is recommended by EMILY’s List.


Representative Cheri Bustos, an award-winning former journalist and city councilwoman from East Moline, is the first female elected to Congress from Illinois’ 17th District. Her first term has been productive, as a sponsor of a bipartisan farm bill and jobs legislation.

From her campaign website:

I have made advocating for women and families a focus throughout my life and career.  I have always fought to ensure that women have equal opportunities and a voice in the most important issues facing our communities, whether in the workplace, in education, or in the public sector.
