Brady allegedly calling House Republican colleagues seeking their support this weekend
State Representative Dan Brady (R, Bloomington), according to WCIA TV’s Mark Maxwell, has decided to seek the Republican nomination for secretary of state in next year’s election, which is open with incumbent Democrat Jesse White’s retirement next year at the age of 88.
White is in his 6th and final term since first being elected in 1998.
With Brady’s decision to seek statewide office, he will vacate his 105th representative district seat in the Bloomington-Normal area at the end of his current term.
It is unclear at this point which gubernatorial candidate (or potential candidate) Brady will be aligned with for the June 28, 2022 Republican primary.
