Been a Catholic my whole life and sadly this is the norm, Many Catholics listen to the teaching of the church but do not hear them or do not believe in them. The Franciscans are a great down to earth bunch of guys, but they do not help in these matters. I have heard a lot of pro life talk come from St Francis on Sundays, then in the next breath you have this guy invited in, I don't get it.

" If they have a R behind the name that is all the typical low level Republican voter cares." (You see what I did there?) That first paragraph is kind of comical considering all the crap I have been getting because I want to vote Libertarian this time around instead of following the R.

Which statement are you referring to? In general your right, but if the alcohol tax is raised in this state. The Wal Marts of this town can absorb some of that, maybe all of it for a little while. Where Winking Market has to pass that on.

Randy Frese has been chosen as the Republican nominee for the 94th Illinois State Representative.

 Frese took 70% of the vote against Marshall Schrader of Monmouth. 

Frese says he is humbled by all of those who helped in the campaign. 

“Thank you to those who came to the fundraisers, who wrote checks, who allowed us to put signs in their yards, who walked and knocked on doors with us,” said Frese. “When it comes down to a night when you can celebrate a victory, it makes it all worthwhile.” 

Currently, there is no Democrat on the general election ballot. 

However, Frese says he will count on the fact that the Democrats will appoint someone to run. 

“We will continue on strongly with the campaign,” said Frese. We will generate some enthusiasm about getting some good conservative ideas and some common sense to Springfield.” 

The Representative seat was left vacant by Rep. Jil Tracy. Tracy ran alongside Kirk Dillard as Illinois Lt. Governor hopeful.

In the three way race for Adams County Clerk, Chuck Venvertloh won over County Board member Becky Weed and Quincy School Board member Scott Stone. 

Venvertloh won by 328 votes over Weed. 

 

Venvertloth took 41% of the vote, beating Becky Weed by 320 votes. Scott Stone took 22% of the vote.

 

Venvertloth said he will use his win's momentum moving forward. 

 

“We’ve got another one coming up here. Becky Weed and Scott Stone both ran a really hard race,” said Venvertloth. “I’m looking forward to them joining the team and making a really cohesive unit and looking ahead to a victory for the Republicans in the fall.” 

 

Venvertloth will go up against Democrat Jonathan Shoenakase on the November ballot.
