The outgoing McLean County Republican Party chair is endorsing his second in command as his replacement. John Parrott is retiring from the position in April, after the March 18th primary. Parrott says current party Vice Chair Chuck Erickson will do a "wonderful job." Erickson also enjoys the support of Republican State Senator Jason Barickman of Bloomington, who says Erickson "represents a new generation of leader." The decision who will lead McLean County Republicans will be made at an April 16th convention. Erickson says his goal is to help the party reach out and expand membership in the party.
