Today, Democratic Party of Illinois Chair Lisa Hernandez released the following statement:

“I have deep respect and admiration for Congresswoman Robin Kelly and appreciate everything she has done to support Illinois Democrats. I’ve spoken with Congresswoman Kelly and we are both ready to move forward in a united fashion. The Democratic Party of Illinois is a big tent rife with opportunity and I am excited and energized to take the helm. Over the coming weeks, I plan to sit down with every member of the State Central Committee, our executive branch candidates, Democratic caucus leaders, committees for the two Democratic Supreme Court candidates, members of DPI staff, and other stakeholders to ensure their vision for our party is incorporated into the apparatus we will build to hold Republicans accountable and win in November. It is the honor of my life to lead this party and I will not let Illinois down.”
