This evening at D’Andrea’s in Crystal Lake, McHenry County Republicans will pay tribute to former Congressman Don Manzullo.
The Egan Republican was first elected in 1992, beating a Democrat elected in 1990, when Manzullo lost the GOP primary for the office.
In 1992, Manzullo won over State Senator Jack Schaffer in the Republican primary before knocking off the one-term Democrat.
He held the seat for twenty years before being beaten in the 2012 Republican primary by Congressman Adam Kinzinger. Reapportionment put both incumbents in the same district, one that went from the Wisconsin to the Indiana border around the Chicago metropolitan area.
The cost is $30 for the reception, which will run from 5:30 to 7:30.
