We are now up to three McHenry County townships with more than 10,000 population where the signal has been sent that Republican candidates for next spring’s election will be selected by the voters.
At Wednesday night’s meeting of the Nunda Township Republican Central Committee, which had a quorum this month unlike last [actually, it was June when there was no quorum], the Precinct Committeemen voted to hold a primary election next February.
The winners would contend with Democrats or independents that might pop up to challenge them in April’s election.
Algonquin was the first township central committee to approve a primary in place of a caucus.
It did so at its organization meeting.
Grafton Township GOP Central Committee Chairman Tom Pozsnaski told me at Republican Play Day in July that his intention was to hold a primary.
