QUINCY — The chair of the Adams County Democratic Party will now have a direct say in who will be the head of the Democratic Party of Illinois.
Kate Daniels of Quincy defeated Springfield Lobbyist Liz Brown-Reeves in Tuesday’s primary to be the Democratic State Central Committeewoman for Illinois’ 15th District. The votes came from Democrats in each county in the newly-configured Illinois 15th Congressional District.
The position works with county chairmen and women in the district on party issues. Each district leader then is involved in the process of selecting the state’s party chairman and also in other issues, such as filling ballot vacancies when they occur in some instances.
Daniels had large margins of victory in her home county of Adams and in Madison County in the Metro East area outside of St. Louis. She won with an overall edge of roughly 52-48 percent.
During her interview on Muddy River News This Week, she discussed how she hoped to improve the party’s grassroots efforts and she specifically talked about the lack of attention being paid previously in Madison County.
