Schneider sees Democratic-controlled House keeping White House in check November 12, 2018
Pioneer Press
Asked about his single highest priority, Brad Schneider said his number one issue is always the economy and creating opportunities for all Americans, and particularly working families, to earn a middle-class lifestyle and achieve the American dream.

Chicago Sun-Times
In Lake County, Democrats were celebrating their first majority on the county board in its 182-year history after picking up at least five seats Tuesday night, with two more still a possibility. “I’ve been the chairman of the party for 27 years, and this was the best year we ever had,” said Sen. Terry Link of Vernon Hills, the Lake County Democratic chair. Lake County Democrats also chalked up wins in the county clerk and treasurer races. Link, who has been around long enough to see the pendulum swing both ways, wasn’t quite ready to mark Lake County in permanent blue marker on the political maps. But, he added, “I can predict one thing: it will never be a red county again.”
