After 17 years of Senator Dick Durbin (D-Ill.), Illinois will see a new conservative challenger – Doug Truax.

Truax, a West point grad, has never run for office before. He founded Veritas Risk Services, LLC, a strategic risk consulting firm and currently serves as co-owner and managing partner.

Truax claims Durbin’s policies have led to “economic stagnation” and he vows to change course. “[Durbin] does not represent me, I don’t think he represents a majority of Illinois, and as long as they recognize the results that he’s gotten for them, there will be a different direction to go in,” says Truax.
