The big question in the Barrington area is who will replace disgraced State Rep. Nick Sauer in the Illinois House of Representatives.
Our sources say that Governor Bruce Rauner’s favorite is Barrington Mayor Karen Darch.
Also applying is Helene Walsh, the wife of former Congressman Joe Walsh, and Chris Bos, the Ela Township Republican Party Chairman.
Since most of the Republican voters are in Lake County, its Republican Party Chairman, Mark Shaw, will decide who is selected.
He was running as the conservative challenger for State Party Chairman, but settled for being named Co-Chairman to Tim Schneider, reportedly as a result of a deal with Governor Rauner.
