STATELINE (WIFR) – Several area county board leaders are endorsing State Senator Kirk Dillard in the Republican race for Illinois governor.
The chairmen of Winnebago, Boone, Stephenson, and Ogle all met with Dillard earlier at the Radisson Inn. Winnebago County Board Chairman Scott Christiansen says Dillard has spent the most time in the Rockford area. He says Dillard has a better grasp how important Northern Illinois is.
“This regions’ going to be my barometer to see how well we’re doing against Wisconsin day in and day out,” said State Senator Kirk Dillard.
The primary election is now less than a week away on Tuesday.
