Illinois Republican candidate for Governor Paul Schimpf (in the June 28, 2022 Primary Elections) shared his vision for the state earlier this week with voters in McHenry County, as well as his plan to beat failed incumbent Democrat Governor JB Pritzker.
Schimpf relayed some of the core issues that really are activating motivation in voters this election cycle, including Parental Rights, School Choice, and of course LESS TAXES. Check out the grassroots video captured at the Cary, Illinois (McHenry County, Ill.) event featuring Schimpf with fellow Conservative voters hungry for leadership who will advocate for liberty and abide by the U.S. Constitution.
