Support REALTOR®, St. Clair County Commissioner Fred Boch of O’Fallon, state Sen. Andy Manar of Bunker Hill, state Sen. Tom Rooney of Palatine and challenger for state representative Herman Senor of Springfield on Nov. 6.
All four candidates have been identified as REALTOR® Champions by RPAC Trustees because they back policies promoting economic growth and lower taxes and are considered pro-businesses and pro-private property rights. Illinois REALTORS® encourages members who live in their districts to vote for these candidates. Read about these candidates and others here.
In addition, Manar, Rooney and Senor have received independent expenditure support from the Illinois REALTORS® Fund. A combination of campaign mail, live phone calls, automated phone calls and digital advertising has been used to encourage registered voters to support them. These ads have been designed and distributed without any coordination with the candidates or the candidates’ campaigns.
