Illinois State Rep. Dan Brady, the Republican nominee for secretary of state, told a reporter he couldn’t remember if he voted for former President Donald Trump in 2020.
“I don’t know if I voted for President Trump in 2020,” Brady told a reporter when asked if he voted for Trump in 2020.
“I think right now I probably did in 2020,” Brady replied when the reporter asked why Brady didn’t know who he voted for in the last presidential election.
“Yeah,” Brady conceded when the reporter again said he couldn’t remember who he voted for for president in 2020. “I would have voted for President Trump, probably in the general election.”
In 2020, the state also had Rocky De La Fuente on the ballot for the Republican presidential primary, challenging Trump’s re-election campaign. Even though Trump won the state in the primary, De La Fuente garnered 4% of the vote.
