Career Politicians are Ruining Illinois

Illinois Shrinks for the 4th Year in a Row

U.S. Census Bureau estimates released Wednesday show Illinois' population fell by 33,703 people between July 1, 2016 and July 1 of this year. The state now trails Pennsylvania in population by about 3,500 people, making Illinois the sixth-most-populous state in the U.S.

Illinois was among eight states that saw their population fall, and lost more people than the seven other states that dropped. The decrease was a tiny fraction of Illinois' total population of just over 12.8 million.

States in the west and south saw the greatest population growth. The fastest-growing state was Idaho, followed by Nevada, Utah, Washington, Florida and Arizona.


Mickey Straub – The most republican, "Republican" in the state

Mickey is a man of principle who puts his country, his family, and his faith above all else. Often described as the most “Republican” republican in the state, Mickey is ready to help make Illinois great again!
