ROCKFORD (WIFR) -- A local politician sets his sights on Springfield and announces his intention to run in the 67th District.
Republican John Guevara made that announcement on Saturday during the annual Winnebago County Republican Lincoln Day celebration. Guevara represents the 13th district on the Winnebago County Board and would face the Democrat incumbent State Representative Chuck Jefferson. It's up to the county Republican Party to decide if they want Guevara on the ballot. He would then need to gather petitions in order to be listed as an official candidate
Saturday’s dinner served as a major fundraiser for the party and also included presentations from all four Republican candidates for Illinois governor. The primary election is March 18, 2014.
