McCarter Announces Run Against Shimkus

State Senator Kyle McCarter

State Senator Kyle McCarter of Lebanon has announced his candidacy for the US Congressional seat currently held by fellow Republican John Shimkus.

This will set the stage for a Republican primary contest on March 15 as McCarter runs against Shimkus to represent the 15th district, which covers much of central and southern Illinois, including most of Bond, Clinton, Madison, and St. Clair Counties.

WGEL will have more on this story Thursday in our Bond County Area News and Friday on our website.
