The Illinois GOP has issued a Resolution in Support of Children, which gained approval and endorsement during the Illinois Republican State Central Committee meeting on October 21st. This resolution marks the initial step in a series of statements aimed at articulating the values and endorsements of the Illinois Republican Party.
