Sangamon County GOP Chairman Tony Libri
The family feud within the Sangamon County Republican Party continues. Sheriff Neil Williamson is the latest top Republican to call for the ouster of Tony Libri as party chairman. Williamson tells the State Journal-Register that he has concerns about Libri's demeanor and the way he treats people. Libri responds that Williamson's real motivation may be the fact that he wants Chief Deputy Jack Campbell to succeed him as sheriff, while Libri favors Deputy Wes Barr for the job. But Libri is also under fire from other Republicans for recent controversies.
