A democratic candidate for Congress talks jobs during a campaign stop in Rockford.

Cheri Bustos and Congressman Steny Hoyer visited the IBEW Hall Wednesday afternoon to talk about the importance of making working class families a priority. Bustos said one focus she shares with Hoyer is making sure the United States focuses on manufacturing.

"Those jobs, they pay well, and they let people feed their families and that needs to be our focus, for Congressman Hoyer, and me, as hopefully a future member of Congress," Bustos said.

Bustos is running against Bobby Schilling for the 17th Congressional District in November. Schilling visited Freeport a few days ago.
