Jerry Long receives endorsement in 76th District race

Posted by wlpo on January 27, 2016

Do endorsements play a factor in who you vote for? Republican State Representative John Anthony of Joliet is backing Streator truck driver Jerry Long in the 76th District State Representative race.

Anthony calls Long an effective leader and one of the hardest working people he’s met. He says Long like himself is committed to bringing prosperity to Illinois while limiting big government. Anthony represents the 75th State Representative District which includes parts of La Salle and Grundy County.

Long will face a primary challenge in March from Jacob Bramel of Marseilles. If he wins that race, he’ll face off with Democrat Andy Skoog in November to hold the seat that was recently given up by Auditor General Frank Mautino.
