Let's see -- states band lead bullets....manufactures use other materials...feds ban those bullets as they aren't made of lead. Basically kills the market for handguns that are rifle calibers...223....5.56mm... The Fed logic is if the ammo can be used in a handgun then ban it....purportedly for officer safety...not that we have any officers being killed by armor piercing rounds. Of course...next…

Rep. Tracy endorses Frese for House

Lt. Gov. candidate says she asked Frese to run

State Rep. Jil Tracy (R-Quincy) said today she asked Randy Frese to run for the seat she is vacating to run for Lt. Governor.

Tracy officially endoresed Frese this morning during a Quincy news conference. She appeared with Frese when he first announced for the office in November and said at that time. "I would not have decided to run for Lt. Governor on the Dillard-Tracy ticket f I wasn't confident that he was going to seek the office."

Today, she went into more detail.

"I asked Randy to run and he said he had to discuss it with his family," Tracy said. "When he said he would, I knew the district would be well represented."

Tracy's official endorsement comes as the Adams County GOP prepares to host its annual Lincoln/Reagan Luncheon on Sunday. 

Frese said he was humbled by Tracy's endorsement and hoped to continue "the tradition of constituent service Jil and those who have also represented West-Central Illinois in the Illinois House have provided."

Frese and Tracy were also making an appearance in Monmouth later Thursday morning. 

Frese is running in the March 18 primary against Marshall Schrader of Monmouth, who held a gathering in a southside Quincy home on Wednesday night. 

There is no Democrat running for the seat, although the party can fill the vacancy after the primary.
