Harold believes she's on par with Davis
A local congressional candidate said she feels she's evenly matched with an incumbent when it comes to elected experience.
Urbana native Erika Harold will compete for the Republican nomination against Representative Rodney Davis of Taylorville next year. Davis was elected to his first term in office last November after working alongside another a member of Congress for more than a decade.
Harold, meanwhile, said she has had leadership experience in her life and has worked with governors and legislators throughout the country.
She said one area where she differs from her opponent is the internet sales tax legislation.
Harold added that she feels she would be a stronger candidate than Davis with some voters.
Harold made the comments on Thursday on A Penny for Your Thoughts on WDWS.
