Somehow, during all the election craziness this week, I missed this story out of my own backyard:
Congressman-elect Randy Hultgren, 44, from west suburban Winfield, is a state senator and evangelical Christian who said he “absolutely” believes that God directed his steps through the race.
That faith would not have been shaken, even in defeat, he said Wednesday, a day after ousting Democrat Bill Foster.
“For me, it’s part of my life that every day I want to be walking in faith,” said Hultgren, who was baptized in the eighth grade and accepted Christ then as his savior.
Hultgren defeated Foster.
The evangelical Christian defeated the former Fermilab researcher.
Our country is screwed, isn’t it…?
