Republican State Senator Darren Bailey paid Hardin a Flag Day visit on Tuesday, June 14, part of his bus tour, as he campaigns for Illinois Governor.
Calhoun Republicans came out to show their support at Illinois Riverdock Restaurant at 9:30 a.m.,where Bailey was in attendance along with other GOP leaders.
Bailey promised the attendees that he will protect the freedoms of Illinois residents, stating that small communities, like those in Calhoun, make a difference. Bailey will appear on the ballot in the Republican primary on June 28. His running mate is Stephanie Trussell.
Also in attendance, and addressing the crowd, was Republican U.S. Representative Mary Miller. She will also appear on the June 28 primary ballot vying for the newly re-drawn Illinois 15th Congressional District. Miller was endorsed by President Donald Trump.
