    The Race: Republican Party Candidate for Illinois State Representative in the 16th District

    The Competition: Lou Lang

    The Buzz: Romano is the former women's rugby team coach at the University of Illinois at Chicago and was once an AMA professional road racer. He went into real estate before becoming a financial advisor at the Romano Group. Although he has no former experience in politics, he said he was exposed to the trade through his relatives that were.

    Romano's campaign encourages the voter to choose a candidate based on personal characteristics and not on political party. His top three concerns are the economy, pension reform and corruption.
