The Chicago Sun-Times has endorsed Tom Geroges over Republican incumbent Dan McConchie for the State Senate.
Here is the endorsement:
Tom Georges in the 26th District
Tom Georges of Mundelein spent 31 years in the Army, achieving the rank of colonel.
Though a Democrat, he credits that experience with shaping him as a fiscal conservative.
“As a military officer, I was required to stay within my means,” he said in a meeting with the Sun-Times Editorial Board.
“I had to prioritize. I had to set my goals, set my objectives and stay within the financial means that I was given.”
Socially, though, Georges describes himself as progressive.
He vows to be a strong supporter of women’s rights and the rights of LGBTQ people.
That’s what separates him sharply from incumbent Dan McConchie, a conservative Republican from Hawthorn Woods.
Georges is endorsed.
