Proft will back Matune, too

We reported last week that conservative talk show host Dan Proft has been spending on behalf of the Illinois House GOP primary campaigns of Peter Breen against Rep. Sandra Pihos and Rep. Jeanne Ives against challenger Adam Johnson.

Now, Proft confirms he's sent a mailer supporting Keith Matune against Rep. Ron Sandack of Downers Grove.

The piece says: "Could Illinois state government use a civics lesson? Keith Matune thinks so." Matune is a teacher.

Proft's Liberty Principles committee last month received $1.5 million from Lake Forest businessman Richard Uihlein, far more money than House Republican Leader Jim Durkin - who still has to wage campaign battles in November - has to spend.
