(WMBD) — State Rep. Dan Brady has overcome billionaire-backed John Milhiser to secure a spot on November’s ballot for the office of Secretary of State.

Milhiser is a member of the GOP “slate” backed by former Illinois businessman Ken Griffin. Milhiser conceded Tuesday evening before the race was called.

Brady has served in the Illinois General Assembly since 2001. He will face Democratic Alexi Giannoulias in November.
