Thank you for your unwavering support! Jil and I are grateful for the thousands of Illinoisans who were a part of our wholehearted endeavor. Although we came up short (March 18), we will never stop fighting for you, Illinois and our shared vision to make Illinois work again.

Our thanks goes out to all of our supporters and volunteers statewide, and to all of the people who voted for us ... all of the families, seniors, young people, farmers, business owners, hardworking teachers, and the state and local employees.

You believed in our plan to make our state the capital of the Midwest once again.

It has been an unbelievable eight months for Jil and me, traveling the state, telling voters that Illinois is broken ... and isn't working. We offered solutions.

[to top of second column in this letter]

We're proud of our endorsements, from a wide variety of groups. In fact, the support we received from crossover voters is unprecedented in a Republican primary. They know we need fresh ideas and new leadership. And they know we need to end one-party control in Springfield!

Unfortunately, our campaign ends here (March 18), but both Jil and I will continue to fight for Republican ideals and principles to help make Illinois work again.

Again, Jil and I thank you all for your support,

Kirk Dillard
Running mate Jil Tracy
