Dear friends and supporters, Now that the 2012 General Elections are behind us, and the 2013 inaugurations are upon us, I wanted to thank you for your support throughout our campaign efforts to win Illinois’ 3rd Congressional District seat. Many unexpected voting results came in on the night of November 6th 2012 in so many races in Illinois and around the country.

Area Republicans and elected officials will be on hand Saturday for in-person voting at the Lemont Township Community Center. Take our poll to tell us your pick for the GOP nomination.
Illinois Republicans have one more day to cast their vote in the state GOP's presidential straw poll. The Illinois GOP launched its first ever online straw poll Oct. 29 to give voters an opportunity to let their voices be heard prior to the presidential primary in March. Through 7 p.m. Saturday, Illinois residents can cast their vote on the straw poll website — after making a $5 contribution.
