DescriptionIllinois Republican Jeff Danklefsen is waging a 2010 campaign in the state's 14th District, where Democratic Rep. Bill Foster already faces a challenge from a son of former House Speaker J. Dennis Hastert.

Danklefsen's lives in Geneva, about 40 miles west of Chicago in Illinois' Fox River Valley, and works as a maintenance manager for a property management company.

"I do not have a political resume, but I understand the challenges families face with increasing tax burdens and the uncertainty of the job market," Danklefsen says on his campaign Web site. "I am asking for the opportunity to represent the 14th District taxpayers in Washington D.C. I will stand up for responsible taxation, a balanced budget, and job growth."

Danklefsen is joining a Feb. 2, 2010 Republican primary that already includes Ethan Hastert, a lawyer whose father represented the 14th for nearly 21 years (1987-2007), eight of them as the House Speaker from 1999 through 2006.
