Local Manufacturers Endorse Schilling

ROCKFORD (WIFR) -- A Quad-Cities politician is spending Manufacturing Day here in Rockford to encourage local workers to support his congressional campaign.

Bobby Schilling stopped by Dial Machine this morning to meet with members of the new "Manufacturers for Bobby" coalition. Several local industry leaders say they are supporting the republican because they're concerned about higher taxes and more regulation for businesses. Dial's Vice President says that could mean a loss of manufacturing jobs at many companies.

“If our costs go up, I'll lose work. Because I'm now not as competitive as foreign competitors, my customers aren't as competitive as foreign operators. We lose business, we lose jobs,” said Eric Anderberg, President of Dial Machine

Schilling will face off against democrat Cheri Bustos in the new 17th District this November.
