On Monday we started bright and early and drove down to Bloomington where I had an opportunity to address and answer questions from State Farm Insurance employees. State Farm is the largest insurance company in the US and is the largest employer in Bloomington. I support their policy of open competition in the insurance arena so that consumers can have more choices and competitive pricing. Thanks to Kevin Callis of State Farm for setting up the visit.
After the State Farm visit we headed to Peoria where I sat down with the editorial board of the Peoria Journal Star for their endorsement session. I focused on the campaign’s key points of fighting corruption and representing State interests so that the regulatory climate in Illinois will create jobs rather than chase them away.
We ended the day at McHenry County where I addressed a large group of McHenry County Republicans. Congressman Don Manzullo, County Chairman and State Rep. Mike Tryon and Senator Pam Althoff were all in attendance. McHenry County Republicans are ready to work for all Republicans during the final stretch leading to November 2nd.
