Downstate Representative speaks at partisan ‘Back the Blue’ rally in LaSalle

LASALLE – A downstate Illinois State Representative known for his recent legal challenges against Governor J.B. Pritzker spoke at a partisan ‘Back the Blue’ rally in front of the LaSalle Police Station Saturday afternoon.   Republican Representative Darren Bailey spoke about not only defending our liberty and freedom, but also spoke about how important the police are to the community.   Flanked by a trailer emblazoned with an image of President Donald Trump, a number of speakers talked about their loved ones in law enforcement and how important it is to ‘Back the Blue’.   Nearby, a gathering of around 20 Black Lives Matters protesters held signs as a counter protest.
