AURORA - Just days before the election NBC 5's Mary Ann Ahern found U.S. Senate candidate Jim Oberweis relaxing ... in sunny Florida.
We're only one week away from the Illinois primary, but GOP U.S. Senate candidate Jim Oberweis is already looking ahead to November.
NBC 5 has learned that Oberweis flew out of Illinois Saturday, and is at his million-dollar Bonita Beach Florida condo until the end of the week.
When reached by phone, Oberweis would not confirm his whereabouts, and when he was repeatedly asked whether he's in Illinois, he replied, "I think you've figured out by now that I'm not answering that question."
Oberweis did say he's "really focused on November," where he hopes to battle incumbent Democratic U.S. Sen. Dick Durbin.
