Illinois Republican Party Chairman, Jack Dorgan has announced that he will not seek re-election. Instead, he will join Gubernatorial candidate, Bruce Rauner’s team as Co-Chair of his Finance Committee.
In a press release, Dorgan stated, “It has been my great honor to lead the Illinois Republican Party as Chairman over the last year, helping position our candidates across Illinois for an incredible victory this November. Our Party is exactly where I had hoped it would be: firing on all cylinders and ready to deliver a new direction to the people of Illinois.”
Dorgan’s preferred replacement is Cook County Commissioner Tim Schneider saying, “I believe that Tim Schneider is the best person to succeed me as Chairman. He understands exactly what it will take to spread the Republican Party’s message of more jobs, better schools, and value for tax dollars. Bruce and I look forward to working closely with Tim in the months ahead. We trust he’ll do a great job.”
