"As a mother, an engineer, a cancer survivor, and I volunteer, I have the grit, I have the logic, and I have the compassion and what it needs to bring this state back. Please join Paul and I in our fight to return Illinois back to you."

Schimpf says he wasn't looking for a running mate who could provide some sort of regional or demographic balance on the ticket, but a "full partner" who could help find solutions for Illinois.

He says voters will have a real choice - in the primary and general election.

"And the choice is, do we want proven, conservative leaders who are going to be able to bring people together and offer solutions, or do we want more of the same - outrage and dysfunctional government."

After stops Tuesday in Crystal Lake and Rock Island, Schimpf and Schofield will campaign on Wednesday in Fairview Heights and Waterloo, then wind up their announcement tour on Thursday in Marion.
