State Representative Adam Niemerg (R-Dieterich) reacted to the Governor’s comments today that were supposed to be a budget address. The Governor’s comments, using the Illinois State Fairgrounds and working Illinois National Guard members as his backdrop, were short on specific real numbers and full of self-promotion and attacks on the Republican minority in the Legislature and the former governor.

Late last night, Cory Musgrave, of Fairfield, Republican candidate to fill the 109th District Representative seat of Darren Bailey, who is now running for the State Senate seat of the 55th IL District, released a press release announcing his decision to end his campaign.
"Today I am announcing the end of my campaign for State Representative in 2020. I have always felt that my responsibility to my wife, five children, and church should take priority and I am no longer able to give my campaign to serve as State Representative 100%.
This is an important race, I have always believed that. Darren Bailey has brought reform and a strong conservative voice to Springfield, this seat needs to stay in the hands of a principled conservative. If I were to stay in the race it would leave three names on the ballot, and one of those candidates, by their associations and previous actions, has proven that they are unfit to serve. Instead of staying in and possibly splitting the vote with another good candidate I have decided to remove myself from the race and encourage the voters in the 109th to support Adam Niemerg. In the days ahead, I will communicate the facts I know about both remaining candidates.
Thank you to the supporters; it has really been overwhelming. Our fight to change Illinois for the better should never be based on a party or a person, but the principles inscribed in the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution of the United States. I will continue to fight for, pray for, and speak for the restoration of Illinois."
Two other candidates now remain in the March 17 Republican primary race for the nomination to be on the ballot in November 2020.
