* Here we go again…
Kay’s loss to Katie Stuart was the only real bright spot for Downstate Democrats last year.
* But, as I told subscribers earlier this week, the House Republican Organization is backing someone else…
Wendy Erhart, a Republican, on Wednesday plans to formally announce her campaign for state representative in the 112th House District. […]
Erhart is a strategic initiatives manager with a local community development lender. She has previously worked for banks, according to her LinkedIn page.
According to Erhart’s campaign, she graduated from Southern Illinois University Edwardsville in 1993. She lives in Maryville with her husband, Doug, and daughter, Katie, and is a board member of the Collinsville Food Pantry.
Erhart served 10 years as a board member with the Southwestern Illinois Leadership Council.
So, before he can get at Stuart, he has to defeat Erhart without HGOP support.
