Interview: Cheri Bustos, D-Moline (IL-17)


A new session of Congress recently convened in Washington. Among the members being sworn in for a new term was Congresswoman Cheri Bustos. She’s a Democrat from Moline who represents a large portion of northwest Illinois — including parts of the Rockford and Peoria metropolitan areas. It’s also a district that President Trump won in both 2016, and 2020.

The 21st was joined by Bustos to talk more about COVID-19, the performance of Democrats in the House races and progressivism.
