Now that the Alabama and Mississippi Republican primaries are over, the candidates are setting their sights on the next big state: Illinois. Except for the densely populated area around Chicago, Illinois tends to be a fairly conservative state.

Pat Fee is the second vice president of the Illinois GOP Women and a candidate for the Illinois State House of Representative in the 84th District. She was a delegate for Mitt Romney in the last election.
