A local businessman recently announced his intent to run for State Senator in Illinois. Seth McMillan, owner of McMillan Landscaping and head of the Christian County GOP will challenge for the senate seat currently held by State Senator Andy Manar (D-Bunker Hill).
McMillan appeared as a guest on the Newstalk WTIM Morning Show to discuss his campaign, and says after a history of being involved in local politics, he wants to work now to help the state of Illinois.
McMillan is running on several stances, such as pro life, tougher stances on immigration, and implementing term limits in Springfield. As a former member of the Taylorville School Board, McMillan also says education is an important issue for him.
Incumbent Manar has held the 48th district state senate seat since 2013.
