The Chicago Tribune said it agreed with Khouri’s view on boosting the middle class, which includes fighting for “balanced budgets and pro-growth business reforms.”
Khouri’s track record as a DuPage County Board Member drew the Chicago Sun-Times’ approval, which said the board “has done a commendable job of cutting costs.” The paper also “respect(s) her advocacy for immediate and creative ways to reduce overall spending.”
