Sandack Mulling House Run
Senator tweets link to Daily Herald blog post.
State Sen. Ron Sandack (R-Downers Grove) today tweeted his confirmation of a Daily Herald blog post suggesting he is considering a run for the Illinois House.
"No drama, just thinking things through and weighing all options," he said via his @RonSandack Twitter account at about 3:45 p.m.
He included a link to the Daily Herald's Suburban Political Recount blog by Mike Riopell and Kerry Lester. The post quotes Sandack as saying a House run is "one of the things on my radar."
Sandack would be pitted against Senate Republican Leader Christine Radogno of Lemont in the newly drawn 41st Senate district should he attempt to retain his current office, which he has held since November 2010. He was appointed to the Senate seat formerly held by DuPage County Board Chairman Dan Cronin.
A House run would rule out a primary confrontation with Radogno, who recently announced she intends to seek reelection.
