Nybo back in the GA

Tuesday, Aug 5, 2014

* No surprise

Republican Chris Nybo was appointed Monday to fill a state Senate seat he unsuccessfully sought two years ago.

Nybo will replace Sen. Kirk Dillard, who resigned Sunday in order to accept his appointment as chairman of the RTA. […]

Nybo had challenged Dillard two years ago for the seat, but Dillard easily defeated him. Dillard did not seek re-election this year, choosing instead to run for governor, where he lost to Bruce Rauner in the primary. Nybo defeated state Rep. Chris Reboletti in the March primary.

“It is an honor to be succeeding Sen. Dillard. Though no one can fill his shoes, he leaves a legislative legacy to be admired and emulated,” Nybo said in a statement. “I will do my best to make the transition from this respected senator as seamless as possible.”

Shall we welcome Nybo back to the General Assembly with a caption contest?…
