Republican incumbent Donald DeWitte faces Democrat Nancy Zettler in the Illinois Senate race in the 33rd district.
The Chicago Sun-Times invited both candidates to appear before our editorial board and sent all candidates running for the Illinois Senate a list of questions to find out their views on a range of important issues facing the state of Illinois.
DeWitte did not participate in the Sun-Times endorsement process or submit a completed questionnaire.
