Daily Herald report

The Kane County Republican Central Committee Wednesday added its voice to that of Cook County Republican Chairman Aaron Del Mar in calling for 8th Congressional District GOP candidate Manju Goel to withdraw from the March 18 primary against opponent Larry Kaifesh.

The requests are based on the SuperPAC Indian Americans For Freedom setting up a website and social media accounts meant to look like they belong to Kaifesh but which instead discredit him. Goel has denied any contact with the SuperPAC or ability to influence its actions.

The Kane County Republican Central Committee represents all 16 of the county's townships and nearly 250 precinct committeemen.
