In recent months, you may have heard the name Habeeb Habeeb, in news stories about Illinois’ 13th district congressional race. As the Republican Party Chairman for Champaign County, he had a role in identifying Rodney Davis as the GOP candidate to replace retiring Congressman Tim Johnson. Habeeb is a self-described “average U.S. citizen who’s very passionate and just happens to be involved in politics.” But there’s more to his story, as Illinois Public Media’s Sean Powers reports in the latest installment of our continuing “Neighbors” series profiling your fellow neighbors in east central Illinois.
