State Representative Dan Caulkins is endorsing State Senator Darren Bailey for the Republican nomination in the Illinois Governor's race.
The Decatur Republican broke down the five candidates vying for the nomination in the June primary. Rep. Caulkins discussed two long-shots for the nomination in Gary Rabine and Paul Schimpf.
Perhaps the three candidates with the best chances at securing the nomination are Aurora Mayor Richard Irvine, businessman Jesse Sullivan, and Senator Darren Bailey. Rep. Caulkins says Sullivan doesn't know why he's running for Governor.
Rep. Caulkins has blistering criticism for the campaign of Mayor Irvine's campaign calling them despicable, immoral people and accusing them of sending out twisted flyers every week. He says Irvine has no platform to run on.
Bailey and Caulkins came to the General Assembly at the same time and Rep. Caulkins believes Bailey will be a solid, conservative with impeccable credentials.
Rep. Caulkins announced his support for Sen. Bailey on the WHOW Morning Show Monday.
