Illinois Republican Party State Chairman Pat Brady issued the following statement regarding the ongoing lack of transparency in the replacement process for a Democrat candidate in Illlinois’ 12th Congressional District:
“Southern Illinois’ Democrat Insiders have shown that they are not willing to be open and transparent following the deadline for candidates to apply for the 12th Congressional District Opening.”
“The Selection Committee has done a disservice to the voters of the 12th District by not releasing the number of applicants and their names. Members of the committee have spoken about potentially having a candidate by the end of the month and how ‘quickly’ they think they will be able to select a nominee.  When choosing a nominee for Congress, is quickly and secretly really in the best interest of the voters?”
“By contrast, Jason Plummer, the Republican nominee for the 12th District, met with voters and fielded their questions at three townhall forums last week. That is an example of openness in government, and I call for the Democrats to schedule several forums so the voters of the District can meet with and choose their candidate.”
