Word from the Illinois Manufacturers Association is that challenger Dave McSweeney is doing quite well in the race to see who gets the first full term after State Rep. Mark Beaubien’s death.
Beaubien was replaced by the man who had been Beaubien’s chief budget guy in the Illinois House, Kent Gaffney.
A third candidate, Danielle Rowe, is also on the ballot.
The poll results follow:
- 47% – Dave McSweeney
- 32% – Kent Gaffney
- 21% – Danielle Rowe
