An Illinois lawmaker would like to move from the Statehouse to the State Department.
Republican state senator Kyle McCarter is under consideration to become the new U.S. ambassador to Kenya. McCarter and his wife have founded a charity that has helped thousands of Kenyan children with education, health care and other critical needs.
Illinois’s GOP Congressional delegation has recommended McCarter for the post, but he must be formally nominated by President Trump and confirmed by the U.S. Senate.
