The chairman of the Sangamon County Democrats is not taking sides… yet… in a possible primary battle for the state legislature.
Doris Turner backed Winston Taylor in his campaign for the 96th House District in 2012… but Sue Scherer narrowly beat him in the Democratic primary and went on to win the general election.
Taylor has indicated on Facebook that he will again challenge Scherer in the primary next spring. While Turner has at times expressed dissatisfaction with Scherer’s positions, she says she’s heard nothing directly from Taylor, and won’t speculate on what she says is still a “hypothetical” challenge.
Turner says the county party is changing its process for endorsements, and says any and all candidates will be welcome to seek the party’s blessing for next year’s races.
