More endorsements are coming in ahead of the November elections. The Sangamon County Farm Bureau is backing Republican Jack Campbell for sheriff. The group interviewed both Campbell and Democratic opponent Odie Carpenter, Jr., but says Campbell has a track record of working in the sheriff’s department to protect farmers and rural residents.
Meanwhile, the National Federation of Independent Business Illinois PAC is supporting GOP challenger Seth McMillan in his race against Democratic incumbent state Senator Andy Manar. The group says McMillan understands the needs of small business owners because he is one.
