Illinois State Senator was a speaker at the Springfield Tea Party rally Monday. He also answered questions about being a candidate for the 13th Congressional District seat being vacated by Tim Johnson.
State Senator Sam McCann says he’s not actively seeking the appointment to replace retiring Congressman Tim Johnson on the November ballot… but he’s not ruling it out either.
McCann skipped a meeting of Republican county chairmen in Bloomington Monday, where they heard from a half-dozen others interested in the appointment.
McCann instead attended the Tea Party Tax Day rally in Springfield, but said he hasn’t withdrawn his name from contention for the 13th Congressional District appointment because constituents have asked him to consider it. The county chairmen will name someone to face Democratic nominee David Gill this fall.
