Who's Your Pick: Chris Lauzen or Kevin Burns?
The Kane County Board chairman race probably is the local headliner for Tuesday's Republican primary. Who do you like? Geneva Mayor Kevin Burns faces off against state Sen. Chris Lauzen.
It's coming to the wire in what probably is the marquee event on the GOP March 20 horse race for Kane County Board chairman.
State Sen. Chris Lauzen took the lead out of the gate, with name recognition and a formidable group of supporters, including his campaign committee chair, former state Sen. Steve Rauschenberger, and endorsements from Congressman Randy Hultgren and former U.S. Sen. Peter Fitzgerald.
Burns started the race with a strong base in the Tri-Cities and a message that his campaign chair would be state Republican Chairman Pat Brady, and has come on in recent weeks with an endorsement sweep from the Chicago Tribune, the Daily Herald and the Kane County Chronicle.
Who will cross the finish line first? That's for you to decide with your vote on Tuesday, March 20.
In the meantime, here's a non-scientific Patch poll.
