McConnauhay Gets Democrat Opponent

Nancy Zettler

Karen McConnaughay

State Senate Karen McConnaughay has garnered an opponent from the Democratic Party.

Her name is Nancy Zettler.

She has long been a District 300 School District activist and last year ran for State Representative against Republican Allen Skillicorn.

Zettler lost that race 57.6% to 42.4%.

It is my belief that a woman running against a man has about a five percentage point advantage.

Any advantage that Zettler had running against Skillicorn obviously will not work against McConnaughay.

Meanwhile, no one filed against Skillicorn in either the Republican Primary.

Neither did anyone file as a Democrat for State Representative.

I have offered to publish Zettler’s press releases, but she has failed to send any.

    If Nancy does a campaign like Jack, well…

  3. Republican State Senator Karen McConnaughay voted against the state income tax hike passed in 2017.

    That was Senate Bill 9, which became law as Public Act 100-0022 on July 6, 2017 after the House and Senate overrode Republican Governor Bruce Rauner’s veto of the bill.


    Here is the bill status for SB 9.
