Republican state gubernatorial candidate Jeannie Ives and her running mate Rich Morthland made a visit to Christian County Tuesday. The pair toured a variety of companies in the county while talking to voters about what they would bring to Illinois.
Morthland says agriculture is a key sector in the state’s economic future.
Morthland says part of the issue is education and opportunities in the state. He is a full-time professor, and says one question he recently asked a class shows why Illinois needs to open up education and economic opportunity.
Morthland says he and Ives understand the needs of everyone in Illinois, and that it’s time for new leadership to change the direction of the state.
