The first Illinois Secretary of State election in over 20 years without an incumbent is shaping up with two candidates set to face off in November.
Candidate Dan Brady, an Illinois state representative, defeated John Milhiser for the Republican nomination. Alexi Giannoulias defeated Anna Valencia in the Democrat primary.
The position is up for grabs for the first time in 23 years after longtime Secretary of State Jesse White chose not to seek reelection. The two candidates will now campaign for the November 8th general election.
