IL-1 Congressional Candidate Pastor Chris Butler Makes a Guest Appearance on the Huckabee Show (Chicago, IL) — Pastor Chris Butler, US congressional candidate for the 1st District of Illinois, made a guest appearance on The Huckabee Show, hosted by the former Governor of Arkansas and former presidential candidate, Mike Huckabee. Pastor Butler and Governor Huckabee discussed Pastor Butler’s pro-life platform and a hope for a more unified nation going forward. “I thank God for you, I really do. I am hoping that folks will find out how to help you to be the congressman for the 1st Congressional District of Illinois.” states Governor Huckabee.
Pastor Chris has a whole-life approach to his pro-life platform. He believes that we must work together for both lives to prosper; that the solution should not be “either women or infants,” but women and infants. True to this whole-life approach, Pastor Chris advocates for economic policies that reduce the financial pressures that many women face that force them to make choices they would not have made otherwise. Pastor Chris is not interested in blaming or stigmatizing anyone, which is antithetical to his campaign and his character. Instead, he wants to bring awareness, deliberation, and holistic solutions to a complex debate that is too often polarizing and too often misses the point. Pastor Butler’s background highlights his ability to bring unity between diverse groups. “I have openly worked with people across the entire political spectrum. I look forward to bringing this skill to Congress.” Says Butler.
Pastor Butler, whose name was recently drawn for the top spot on the IL-1 ballot, has been connecting with voters and communities since March of 2021. He is the Senior Pastor of the Chicago Embassy Church Network, he has launched various initiatives serving at the local, state, and national level. For example, Pastor Butler worked in education reform as Deputy Campaign Manager for A+ Illinois and as Advocacy Director for New Schools for Chicago. Pastor Butler also co-founded the Chicago Peace Campaign to reimagine public safety, as well as the AND (&) Campaign, a nonprofit organization which promotes civic engagement nationwide. He recently co-authored the award-winning book Compassion & Conviction.
