CHICAGO – This week's Illinois Republican Party county conventions will involve electing IL GOP state central committeemen, county party chairmen and party secretaries – an event that could be pivotal in the future of the ILGOP. 

Over the weekend, state Senator Darren Bailey, who won the IL GOP party nomination on June 28th, voiced his opinion about who he'd like to see represent the 5th Congressional District on the IL GOP State Central Committee. 

Bailey sent out an endorsement of Chris Cleveland, the former chair of the Chicago Republican Party, that said,

Dear Republican County Chairmen, Republican Precinct Committeemen, Republican Women, and Republican leaders and volunteers,

During the past year, I have been on the road building a movement to take back Illinois. On June 28th, our movement had an historic night as I finished the first leg of this journey with a resounding victory in the Primary Election.

Of course, there is still a long way to go as the final test is the General Election on Nov. 8th.

As Republicans, we are all committed to firing JB Pritzker and stopping his run for President before it even gets started. We know what a disaster he has been as Governor and the last thing we need is for him to become President of the United States.

If we are going to be successful, it is imperative, we have a qualified, energetic, and capable team of people leading our party. To that end, I am endorsing Chris Cleveland for State Central Committeeman.

Chris understands the mission we are on to save Illinois. He is the former chairman of the Chicago Republican Party, and he will be an effective State Central Committeeman who will put our Republican values first.

Please attend the County Convention and urge everyone you know who has a vote to cast their vote for Chris Cleveland for State Central Committeeman. We can and will turn our state around with the right leaders in place.

Bailey's campaign has not responded as to whether they've endorsed anyone else to be on the state central committee.
