Senate Republican Leader Bill Brady (R-Bloomington) announced his resignation from the Illinois State Senate effective December 31, 2020. In November, Senator Brady announced he would step down from his leadership of the Caucus at the conclusion of the 101st General Assembly.
Senator Brady will be replaced as Republican Leader by Senator Dan McConchie (R-Hawthorn Woods). Senator McConchie was elected to assume leadership of the Caucus shortly after Senator Brady announced he would not seek to retain his leadership role into the 102nd General Assembly.
ISACo wishes Senator Brady all the best in his new endeavors.
It was also announced that Senator Dale Righter (R-Mattoon) will continue to serve the Republican Caucus as chief-of-staff when the 102nd General Assembly convenes on January 13. Senator Righter did not seek re-election in 2020.
