LaHood praises McKenna and declares his candidacy for Kjellander's Illinois Republican National Committeeman post - Bernard Schoenburg
(THE ARTICLE: U.S. Rep. Ray LaHood, R-Peoria, wants to be the next Republican National Committeeman from Illinois. LaHood, who is completing his seventh two-year term in the House and isn't seeking re-election to Congress, said today that he has sent a letter to members of the Republican State Central Committee seeking their support as he tries to become the national committeeman. The Illinois GOP has three members on the national committee - the state party chairman, and one woman and one man. The man currently is Bob Kjellander of Springfield, who is serving out his term that ends at the completion of this year's Republican National Convention in St. Paul. Kjellander is vice chairman of the committee on arrangements for the convention, but isn't expected to seek another term as national committeeman. “Kjellander is not running again,” LaHood said, adding that he has spoken with state GOP Chairman Andy McKenna and others around the state about the committeeman post. “I think I've got the credentials as a Republican having been elected seven times, and that I know the ways of the Republican Party in Illinois,” LaHood said. “Frankly, it's a way for me to stay active in party politics and it's an opportunity for me to, I think, continue to make a contribution to the Republican Party,” LaHood said. “I think I have the knowhow and the experience to do a good job.” Delegates to the GOP state convention in Decatur in June will elect the next committeeman. LaHood said he thinks McKenna has done a “terrific job,” and he called fund-raising for the party under McKenna “extraordinary.” He also thinks McKenna recruited good statewide candidates for 2006 elections, and LaHood wants to be part of “the team of leaders that puts together some of our best candidates” for the 2010 statewide elections. That's part of the way, he said, that “we rebuild the party in Illinois.” LaHood isn't aware of anyone else seeking the post, but thinks there could be competition by the time of the state convention. LaHood said he's proud that he was the top votegetter in Illinois of elected GOP National Convention delegates pledged to the party's presumptive nominee, U.S. Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz.)
