PEORIA, Ill.-- One of the four republican candidates on Tuesday’s primary election ballot joined in on the St. Patrick’s Day festivities.

State Senator Bill Brady greeted parade goer’s on Monday, walking with Peoria elected officials.

With the Primary election on Tuesday, this was the Senators last chance to make an impression on downstate voters.

Wishing Peorians a Happy St. Patrick's Day and giving them a friendly reminder to remember to vote.

"They know that we are the reliable republican candidate in this race. The other candidates fall short of building the base in the Republican Party. I'm the only candidate with 100% pro-life voting record, the only candidate with 100% second amendment voting record,” said Senator Brady.

Brady says the state needs a downstate governor who understands that there is more to Illinois than just Chicago.
