SPRINGFIELD – The Sangamon County Republican Central Committee has endorsed State Senator Kirk Dillard (R- Hinsdale) for Governor and State Representative Jil Tracy (R-Quincy) for Lt. Governor.
Previous to the endorsement, polls conducted throughout Sangamon County showed support for the Dillard-Tracy team. “The results suggest that Dillard is very popular in this county,” said Sangamon County Republican Central Committee Secretary Bruce Stratton.
Sangamon County's backing is the fourth county-level endorsement/ straw poll showing the regional diversity of the Dillard-Tracy team. The duo have notched the Republican Assembly of Lake County, McLean County and won a decisive 70 percent victory at the recent Jackson County poll.
“We are extremely pleased to receive the endorsement of the Sangamon County Republicans. This is huge endorsement because Sangamon is rich with Republican primary voters,” said Representative Jil Tracy, “Senator Dillard and I are committed to ensuring that the seat of Illinois government is Springfield and helping bring crucial government jobs back to the capital city.”
