With the Primary Election now one week away, Congressman John Shimkus has the endorsement of Governor Bruce Rauner. Rauner joined Shimkus on a number of campaign stops on Monday, including a stop at the Vandalia Statehouse. Rauner spoke to the gathered crowd and threw his support behind Congressman Shimkus.
Shimkus is facing a Primary battle from State Senator Kyle McCarter. Meanwhile, the two will have their only face-to-face debate on Saturday at noon here at the WKRV-WPMB studios.
