Two days after announcing his run for the Illinois House, a Marion County Board member is dropping out of the race.
Adam Smith, a Centralia Republican, suspended his campaign for the 107th District to replace state Rep. John Cavaletto, R-Salem. Cavaletto is not running for re-election in 2018.
“Upon further review and a lot of introspection over the last several days, I have realized there are not enough hours in a day to achieve all that needs to be done for a campaign.” Smith said. “In addition to running a business, selling real estate, and fulfilling county board obligations, it is important to me that I still have time for my church and family responsibilities.”
Smith said he plans to continue to serve on the Marion County Board.
