    Three members of the Illinois Freedom Caucus, the Illinois House’s most conservative members, are fighting for their political careers — and their brand — in March 19 primaries that will ask Republicans in some of the state’s most conservative districts which brand of Republican politics they want representing them in Springfield.  

    Two of the three members facing a primary are up against challengers heavily funded by teacher unions and are seeking more effective representative in contrast to the Freedom Caucus’ often hardline opposition to most policies passed by the General Assembly.
