Rep. Tim Johnson stepping down after winning GOP primary

| No Comments

WASHINGTON--Rep. Tim Johnson (R-Ill.) has a 3 p.m. CST press conference today in the Urbana City Council Chambers, his office told me this morning, as multiple Illinois news outlets outlets are reporting that he is folding his bid for re-election.

Johnson won re-nomination in the March 20 Illinois primary and was facing weak Democratic opposition in November.
