The poster child for House Republicans who voted to override Governor Bruce Rauner’s veto of the Democrats’ 33% personal income tax hike, Steve Andersson, announced last night on Chicago TV that he was not running for re-election.
Andersson represents the Sun City part of McHenry County.
At the time of the vote, Andersson was the Floor Spokesman for House Republicans.
House Minority Leader Jim Durkin soon replaced Andersson with the more conservative Peter Breen.
When Andersson won the seat, there was a three way race among him, Dan Ugaste and Debbie Miller.
Anderson beat second place candidate Ugaste by 1410 votes.
Miller was 923 behind Ugaste.
All three candidates were from the southern part of the district.
