DEAC donates $5,000 to Oberweis campaign

November 16, 2010

Jim Oberweis received a $5,000 campaign donation Feb. 27 from the Dealers Election Action Committee, which raises donations from NADA members.

Oberweis, who lives in Sugar Grove, faced Democrat in a March 8 election to fill the seat vacated by Rep. Dennis Hastert.

Presenting the donation to Oberweis were CATA President Jerry Cizek, Metro Chicago NADA Director Ray Scarpelli Sr., and CATA Chairman Mark Scarpelli. Since 1975, DEAC has contributed more than $24 million to the campaigns of pro-business, pro-dealer congressional candidates.
