A Springfield alderman is making plans to challenge an incumbent Illinois lawmaker.
Sangamon County Republicans have given their endorsement to Ward 2 Alderman Herman Senor to run against Democratic State Representative Sue Scherer. But so far, Senor isn’t talking publicly about his plans.
Party leaders are also supporting a challenger to Republican State Senator Sam McCann who has frequently clashed with GOP Governor Bruce Rauner.
Steve McClure says he will leave his job as a Sangamon County prosecutor to run against McCann in next spring’s GOP primary.
