Hoffman Estates,Illinois, May 20, 2012 – The Illinois Center Right Coalition, a conservative group, has endorsed broadcaster and longtime taxpayer watchdog William J. Kelly for Republican National Committeeman from Illinois.
Also in the race are Rich Williamson, the current Republican National Committeeman, and Alexander “Sandy” Stuart, who serves as treasurer for the Illinois Republican Party.
“We need leaders with passion and commitment to the conservative platform of the Republican Party.” says Illinois Center Right Coalition Chairman Frank Napolitano. “As a longtime taxpayer advocate, William J. Kelly has never shied away from taking the courageous stands. He is outspoken on defending the conservative planks in the party platform and the Republican Party needs that more than ever before. That is why the Illinois Center Right Coalition is proud to endorse Kelly for the post of National Republican Committeeman.”
“I’m very proud to have the endorsement of the Illinois Center Right Coalition, an organization that has always exhibited a principled dedication to conservative ideals,” says Kelly. “I will do my best to run a campaign that will honor this great organization and other conservative and Republican organizations acrossIllinois.”
“It is time to free the Illinois Republican Party of the influences of donors that play both sides of the political fence,” remarked Kelly about why he is running for National Republican Committeeman. “We cannot be the party of Reagan, if we are the party influenced and funded by major bundlers to Barack Obama and top contributors to Rahm Emanuel. It is time to give the Illinois Republican Party back to the people – the way it should be.
