State Senator Sam McCann revealed he was not running for another term at Monday's filing deadline. That leaves former Sangamon County prosecutor Steve McClure in the race.
In an interview given shortly before his announcement, the Carlinville area Republican sounded like someone ready to walk into the sunset from the Capitol.
McCann says the Illinois political system is broken because the people in it have the wrong priorities.
McCann is expressing dissatisfaction with the state republican party, several county party organizations and his rival, Governor Bruce Rauner.
