(Springfield, IL) — It could be a very divisive primary for Illinois Republicans next spring. Burr Ridge Mayor Mickey Straub yesterday announced his bid to unseat Illinois House Minority Leader Jim Durkin. Straub said that it’s ’embarrassing’ that Illinois continues to lose people year after year. He also said it’s time for Republicans to stand up against the tax increases from Springfield. Straub is the latest conservative to decide to take on a longtime Republican leader in Springfield.
