State Rep. Brady Won’t Seek Congressional Seat

April 26, 2012

One potential Republican candidate for Illinois' 13th Congressional District has withdrawn his name from consideration.

In an e-mailed statement, Bloomington State Representative Dan Brady cites family reasons, his duties as a state legislator, and a business partnership as a funeral director for withdrawing his name.

Brady thanked 'the very generous and kind individuals who have e-mailed, written, or stopped me to convey their confidence in me to represent them in the United States Congress.'

Brady says he won't rule out future elective office, but says he's now seeking re-election to his seat in the newly drawn 105th House District.
