SPRINGFIELD-Senate Minority Leader Christine Radogno (R-Lemont) fended off a challenge to her leadership slot Wednesday, winning re-election as the top Senate Republican by a convincing margin.

The closed-door vote of 19 incoming Senate Republicans swung 12-6 in favor of Radogno, according to a source. One vote was cast for neither McCarter nor Radogno.

Radogno had faced a challenge from state Sen. Kyle McCarter (R-Lebanon), a conservative Republican who said November’s loss of five Republican seats in the Senate warranted a change in the GOP leadership structure.
