Applications Being Accepted To Replace LaHood In State Senate

(SPRINGFIELD, IL) — Applications are being accepted through Monday to find a replacement for the state Senate seat vacated by Darin LaHood. A selection committee has been put together to choose who fills the vacancy. LaHood left the Illinois Senate after being elected to replace Aaron Schock as a U.S. Representative for Illinois’ 18th Congressional District. Schock resigned after federal investigators began looking into his spending habits while in office.
