Republican Candidate For Governor Asks For Unity

A Republican Governor candidate says that he would like to see an end to internal party bickering. Paul Schimpf, GOP candidate for Illinois Governor spoke at an event hosted by former State Representative Roger Eddy in Robinson Illinois.  Schimpf focused on a need for the Illinois Republican Party to defeat JB Pritzker but worried that the destructive nature of the primaries would keep them from doing that. 


He says there must be an end to party bickering that is dividing the Republican Party and is worried that all the fighting is keeping voters away.  Schimpf says that “Illinois needs a Governor who will listen, learn, and lead in a way that unites and recognizes the strength of Illinois is in its people not its government.”


Schimpf served as a State Senator for the 58th Senate District, is a Marine Corps veteran and spent time as the Chief American Attorney Advisor to Iraqi prosecutors in the trial of Saddam Hussein.  He and his family live in rural Monroe County.
