    Democratic Party Candidate for Illinois State Senate in the 54th District

    The Competition: 
    Kyle McCarter

    The Buzz: Danny Stover is a retired Kaskaskia Community College professor from 1978 to 2006. He was elected as city councilman in 1983 and then Mayor Pro Tem in 1985. Stover became a city councilman again in 2003 until he was elected county board member in 2006.

    He is concerned with job creation and alternative energy and wants to improve healthcare and protect the rights of huntsmen and gun owners. He believes the main issue with the government is not partisanship, but corruption which, according to Stover's campaign website, has been assumed as the "status quo."
