McConchie earns key Fremont Township GOP endorsement
It’s five precinct committee chair- men called McConchie the “only choice” in a three-way race against Martin McLaughlin and Casey Urlacher.
McLaughlin drew criticism for his prior financial support of Chicago Machine Democrats Dan Hynes and Maria Pappas.
“In regards to his voting record, we can find evidence that Martin McLaughlin has pulled a Republican primary ballot only one time -- in 2014, despite regularly voting in general elections,” they wrote in a letter to members published by Illinois Review.
“Casey Urlacher has never voted in a primary and only once in a general election. He has given only one publicly-reported political con- tribution to a partisan race prior to his announcing his run for Senate. It was to a Democrat,” the latter said. “He only began donating to Republicans after announcing his run for this office.”
“Dan McConchie was clear and articulate, demonstrating a strong understanding of the issues facing our state and a history of commitment to Republican values,” the letter said.
