Halbrook to Seek Re-Election to the 107th House District

“I helped build the pushback team against the Democrat’s harmful policies in Springfield and that work must continue.”

Shelbyville, Illinois:  Today Republican State Representative Brad Halbrook announced he will run for re-election in the 107th State House District.  Halbrook has one of the most conservative voting records in the Illinois House and has been unafraid to speak up in committee and during floor debates on a myriad of important issues.  “We need to be a vocal minority when the Democrats bring up crazy ideas. I have been able to stop or have legislation altered simply by paying attention and speaking up. I am seeking re-election because we need someone with the courage willing to make arguments and fight for commonsense laws and for our shared values in the 107th.”

Over the last couple of years, Halbrook has refined his use of technology, social media, and in-person town halls to connect voters with critical information so they are more informed and can help inform others.  He has produced numerous online videos and social media posts to get information directly to the people he represents and out to the media to influence legislation. “Information is power,” said Halbrook and, “I believe in full transparency on all policies that affect constituents.”

Rep. Halbrook also has a deep understanding of local government. His comments, most recently, influenced legislation dealing with county use of public property ensuring taxpayers were protected when counties bid out their property for use by others. He is also extremely knowledgeable on education and energy issues, having hosted town halls with experts on both topics in just the last year.

Halbrook is a founding member of the Illinois Freedom Caucus, which provides its own conservative analysis on legislation and works together to give a bigger voice to critical policy debates.  Under Halbrook’s guidance, the group has hosted online weekly discussions on energy, education, crime bills, gun ban laws, taxes, and much more. Halbrook stated that, “I helped build the pushback team against the Democrat’s harmful policies in Springfield and that work must continue.”

Rep Halbrook is pleased to announce the endorsement & support of Illinois Freedom Caucus members Chairman St Representatives Chris Miller & Dan Caulkins, Illinois State Senators Steve McClure & Chapin Rose, Republican County Chairmen Ross Wilson - Shelby, Mark Hughes - Montgomery & Jose Durbin - Effingham.

Rep. Halbrook’s work has been recognized by important conservative organizations. He has received The Champion of Free Enterprise from the Illinois Chamber of Commerce, along with numerous endorsements from National Federation of Independent Business, NRA-PVF A rating, ABATE, Associated Builders & Contractors, Illinois Farm Bureau, Illinois Fraternal Order of Police & the Illinois Sheriff’s Star Legislative Endorsement.


Additionally Halbrook has earned a lifetime conservative score of 93%, the highest of any sitting Illinois State Representative from the Center for Legislative Accountability (CLA), a project of the American Conservative Union Foundation, 

Brad and his wife Linda have lived in & around Shelbyville, Illinois for their entire life where they raised their two children. They own and operate a small farming operation.
