SPRINGFIELD,IL -(Effingham Radio)- There could soon be another candidate in the race for Illinois governor.
West central Illinois state Senator Sam McCann yesterday announced that he is running for governor in the Conservative Party.
But Illinois Senate Republican Leader Bill Brady yesterday said McCann isn’t a true conservative.
Other politicos at the statehouse say McCann is looking to run not to win, but to siphon votes from Governor Rauner in this fall’s race against J.B. Pritzker.
