A candidate for Illinois Lt. Governor said there's no longer a need to eliminate the office now that the Governor and Lt. Governor are running as a team.
That's the word from Republican State Representative Jil Tracy, who's running alongside Republican candidate for Governor Kirk Dillard.
The Illinois House approved a bill earlier this year to eliminate the Lt. Governor's position. The plan now awaits action by the Senate and would also have to be approved by voters in November 2014.
Tracy said the Governor and Lt. Governor's offices will now have similar ideas and agendas which will then help make the budgets for those two offices more efficient and effective.
