LaHood officially files for re-election

PEORIA, Ill. - Darin LaHood has filed his candidacy for the 18th Congressional District.

The primary election for the seat will be held on March 20.

“I am grateful for the outpouring of support from all corners of the 18th District,” said LaHood. “This is a record number of signatures for my campaign and I’m overwhelmed by our dedicated team of volunteers.”

LaHood files with more than three times the required signatures needed.

Filing for office, done every two years at the Congressional level, requires a minimum number of signatures that is set by vote totals in previous elections. This year, qualifying for the 2018 Congressional ballot in the Illinois 18th District required the Republican candidate to submit 1,033 qualified signatures.

“The effort and commitment that goes into the petition process is considerable and I continue to be humbled by all of the county chairs and volunteers who helped make this happen,” LaHood continued to refer to the 3,432 signatures representing all 19 counties in the Illinois 18th District.

“I look forward to the opportunity to stand before the voters of the 18th District and ask for their continued support,” said LaHood. “I work hard, every day, to promote Central & West Central Illinois, to find common ground advancing good public policy, and to identify ways we can work together to move our country forward.”
