For House district 116, Representative Dave Severin was unopposed on the Republican ticket.

Severin pointed to his record when he spoke to WSIU earlier this spring, emphasizing his commitment to the second amendment and his work on the judiciary committee in the General Assembly.

"This would be my fourth term, and in the previous three terms I have a proven record of being 100% pro-life and 100% second amendment, and the other thing also is that some of the committees that I've served on, one of them that I'm most proud of this last session, the 102nd session, would be the spokesperson on the Republican side of the house for the jud-crim committee, and that is the committee that all these terrible bills that the other side of the aisle have tried to ram down the throat of Illinoisans and tried to make things left safe," he said.

Severin previously represented the 117th district.
