Congressman Eric Sorensen was born and raised in Rockford, Illinois.

He served communities across Central and Northwestern Illinois as a local TV meteorologist for over two decades, communicating live-saving information that impacted Illinoisans' jobs, schools, farms, and safety. To Eric, being a meteorologist was about building trust and protecting his community.

In Congress, Sorensen still values being a trusted neighbor to the residents of Illinois' 17th Congressional District. He is focused on lowering costs for working families, creating sustainable jobs in Central and Northwestern Illinois, and supporting the family farms and rural communities that keep our economy moving forward.

Sorensen proudly represents Illinois farmers on the House Agriculture Committee and uses his background in science to contribute to his role on the Science, Space, & Technology Committee. On the Science, Space and Technology Committee, Sorensen serves as Ranking Member on the Space and Aeronautics Subcommittee.

He currently resides in Moline with his partner Shawn and his dogs Petey and Oliver.
