Sullivan won’t seek Congressional seat
State Sen. John Sullivan will not make a bid for the 18th Illinois Congressional District seat, vacated upon the resignation of Cong. Aaron Schock.
“After careful consideration, I have decided not to seek the nomination for the special election to represent the 18th Illinois Congressional District,” he said. “I very much appreciate all of the encouragement of family, friends and supporters as I explored a potential run. It is an honor and a privilege to represent Western Illinois in the Illinois State Senate and I will continue to concentrate my efforts to that end.”
