According to the News-Gazette, We may know by next week who will replace Mike Frerichs in the Illinois Senate.
The Champaign Democrat was recently elected state treasurer, and the Democratic party chairmen in Champaign and Vermilion Counties have been working to appoint his replacement.
Vermilion County Democratic Party Chairman Frank Wright said around a dozen people have approached him about the job, and he’s since narrowed that list down to six. He said Champaign County Democratic Party chairman Al Klein has a list of his own.
Wright said he may have some news about finalists or the selection itself on Dec. 2. He declined to mention names of people who are being considered.
