Jacksonville alderman to take on Davidsmeyer in Fall election
Democrat Brandon Adams, a Jacksonville alderman, is on the Nov. 3 ballot to take on state Rep. C.D. Davidsmeyer, R-Jacksonville, for the 100th House District seat.
Democratic county chairs selected Adams for the race this week.
"I look at this campaign as fulfilling my duty in democracy," said Adams, 45. "No election should have an incumbent go unchallenged."
Davidsmeyer, 40, has been in the House since late 2012. He overcame a primary challenge in 2018, but faced no Democrat in that year's general election. No Democrat filed to run in the primary this year, but state law allows major parties to fill ballot vacancies after the primary. Adams also had to submit petition signatures to secure his place as a general election candidate.

Adams to vie for Davidsmeyer’s seat
Assistant Republican Leader C.D. Davidsmeyer, R-Jacksonville, will be defending his position as state representative in the upcoming election. City of Jacksonville Ward 3 Alderman Brandon Adams will be vying for Davidsmeyer’s seat.
Adams, a Democrat, said he is passionate about healthcare, fiber optics and cannabis and plans to use those among his main discussion points to win votes on Election Day, Nov. 3.
“Healthcare has always been big on my list,” Adams said during a phone interview. Adams was in a coma for two months after being infected with West Nile virus. When he woke, he said, he was presented with a $321, 639 intensive care bill.
