Party unity in the aftermath of Tuesday’s hotly-contested primary races might be easier said than done.
Illinois Republicans came together for an event in Chicago Wednesday. But Kirk Dillard, who finished a close second to Bruce Rauner in the race for governor, was a no-show.
Staffers say Dillard returned to Springfield for the legislative session.
Meanwhile, Sangamon County Sheriff Neil Williamson still says he’s unlikely to get involved in the effort to elect fellow Republican Wes Barr to succeed him.
Williamson had supported Barr’s opponent, Undersheriff Jack Campbell. Williamson says he remains concerned about Barr’s plans for the office, and says he will likely “sit out” the general election.
