Belleville, IL Jimmy Lee Tillman II, a candidate for U.S. Senate, attended the St. Claire County Candidate's Forum on May 27, 2022, at Hofbrauhaus in Belleville. After receiving a last-minute invitation and a tire blowout en route, Tillman made it to the venue and displayed intelligence and confidence throughout the forum.
The video begins at the U.S. Senate segment of the forum. Tillman remarks during the four man lineup were head and shoulders above the other participants. St. Claire County provided the campaigns with the following questions in advance :
Why is it important for the Republicans to own the majority in the U.S. Senate?
What would your priorities as U.S. Senator be? Why are you the best candidate to run against Tammy Duckworth?
How will you help families flourish economically and raise their children without government interference?
What former or current U.S. Senator would you emulate?
Many were baffled to find Illinois GOP Godfather Al Salvi answering questions for his wife Kathy, the actual candidate in the race. Other candidates in attendance were Casey Chelbak and Bobby Piton.
