He might be in his first term in the Illinois House, but Darren Bailey is already looking to move up.

The Xenia farmer is scheduled to announce today that he will be a candidate for 55th District State Senator. Bailey is looking to succeed Republican Dale Righter of Mattoon, who earlier announced he will not seek re-election in 2020.

A formal announcement by Bailey is scheduled for noon at the Wayne County Courthouse in Fairfield.
