St. Clair’s County State Brendan Kelly (D) released a digital ad featuring a mother who lost her daughter to the opioid crisis in 2012. “It’s the huge flood of money into our politics,” Kelly says in the spot. “Pharmaceutical companies give money to members of Congress and then Congress doesn’t allow law enforcement to regulate the flow of these pharmaceuticals that are causing the cycle of addiction in our communities.”

Kelly describes himself as the first state’s attorney in Illinois to take on big pharmaceutical companies. (YouTube)
