Illinois Senator Recaps March Primary

The March 19th Primary featured tight races and many contested positions, but one Illinois Senator says now that campaigning is done it is time to begin working together as legislators for the State of Illinois. Illinois State Senator Steve McClure, representing the 54th District, says returning to normal political operations in the wake of a primary can be difficult, as some members allow past support or lack thereof to dictate their decision-making.


Senator McClure spoke on “ugly political races” explaining that these campaigns showcased negative tactics to gain votes.


Voter turnout saw lows across the state and Senator McClure ultimately attributes that to the straightforward results of the presidential races. McClure says that low voter turnout is an aspect that he and other legislators look to address.
