Rock Island attorney Jeff McKinley is seeking the Republican nomination to represent the 71st district, which includes parts of Rock Island and Whiteside counties. In 2012, Democrat Mike Smiddy defeated incumbent Republican Rich Morthland following redistricting.
At Wednesday night's meeting of the Sauk Valley Tea Party McKinley introduced himself to those in attendance and explained what he would like to do as a state Representative in Springfield such as property tax reform. (Video below the fold)
