“The overwhelming support across the 26th Senate District and from our conservative state leaders is humbling,” said Dan McConchie. “It is clear that my lifelong conservative values, 20-year record of conservative policy solutions, and vision for a new Illinois is connecting both with voters and those leaders who are going to be part of the solution to get our state back on track.”

The Daily Herald stated this week, “McConchie is well-spoken and well-versed on the financial issues. [Martin] McLaughlin does not have the conservative credentials of Dan McConchie, [Senator Dan] Duffy’s choice to succeed him.”Endorsement Collage
