The Northwest Herald has weighed in on its choice for the man to replace State Senator Dan Duffy.
It’s Barrington Hills Village President Martin McLaughlin.
Here’s what the Editorial Board wrote:
“In this race, we believe McLaughlin’s pension background would be an asset.
“While we generally support Gov. Rauner’s Turnaround Agenda, we believe lawmakers must have an independent voice.
“Given the amount of political action committee money being spent in support of McConchie, we question how beholden he’d be to Rauner and the PACs supporting him. We endorse McLaughlin.”
