State Rep. Dennis Reboletti (photo right) has sent a letter to precinct committeemen announcing that State Sen. Kirk Dillard has endorsed him as the candidate to take over his [Dillard's] district in the Illinois Senate. Dillard is not running for reelection as he is a candidate for the GOP nomination for governor in 2014.
According to the letter, Dillard said of Reboletti: "[He] is floor leader in the Illinois House, and that puts him in the center of action on virtually every piece of legislation in Springfield. He is the criminal law leader, Dennis protects Illinois families every day, Dennis is tested and proven. He's a respected, known figure in Springfield that knows how to serve his constituents on a daily basis."
Speaking with Dillard were State's Attorney Bob Berlin, House Minority Leader Jim Durkin, and State Rep. Patti Bellock.
