CHICAGO -- There are published reports Illinois GOP Chairman Pat Brady is planning to step down for personal reasons.
The reports have Brady announcing his resignation on Tuesday.
Republican State Rep. Jim Durkin told the Chicago Sun-Times Brady is "leaving on terms that he's imposed on himself." Durkin says Brady, who he calls a dear friend, wants to spend more time with his family.

I’m in Chicago and I talk to conservatives all the time. I just never knew there was a Republican party here.
RINOs don’t belong in the republican party, and especially not in leadership. If you’re not a social conservative, don’t seek a leadership role. That is the bedrock of our party, Faith, Family, and Service to Country.
I'm guessing he's reached some backroom deal to have a hand-picked puppet replace him.
LOL, obviously, this guy is himself a turd poker.
Liberalizing the brand, that's been the plan here in Illinois for a very long time. Backing "republicans" like Mark Kirk, Mitt Romney (early in the primaries) was a huge mistake.
Be aware that losing losers like Brady will not automatically fix the republican party in Illinois.
Pat Brady has no control over who his replacement will be. During the April 13 meeting, the SCC chose a committee who will choose the new chairman.
But definitely a step in the right direction.
You’re probably right. There is no Republican Party to speak of here in IL.
Riiiigggghhht. The deal is already done or he wouldn’t be stepping down.
Amen my FRiend. The Ds and Rs are blurred into one power-preserving party known as The Combine. The D's have a family based, RICO-style stranglehold on the state with no true opposition from the Rs. King Mikey makes deals and the Rs follow. Unlawful laws are passed from the initiatives of the Speaker and the blessing of the AG. Nothing to see here, move along.
FYI, Pat Brady says “a woman or a minority” will replace him. If he’d like a minority, how about a conservative? Conservatives are certainly a minority in the IL GOP and we haven’t had one as Chairman in 11 years.
Judy Baah Baah Toooopinka??? Same old. Same old. The old lot lizard can be found if the IL GOP is willing to cruise the truck stops. Or, maybe, Bill Ayres or Bernardine Doehrn. Jesse Jackson, Jr., is unavailable but his wife is available and is both female and minority. Maybe the Rahmfather has a nominee. How about Richie Daley???
GOD BLESS AMERICA!
A MINORITY would be an Illinois Conservative!
How ‘bout Rosanna Pulido for IL GOP Chair ? ;-)
Thanks but while I am in Texas I do not think I can swing it.
How about bringing back Sandy Rios!
How about Alan Keyes! We can ship him in! LOL!
