The "Republican Revival Service" scheduled for Nov. 4 at Spring Grove Bible Fellowship has been canceled.
The service was to start at 10 a.m. and feature keynote speaker John Donnellan, the former superintendent of Fox Lake School District 114.
A free luncheon was to follow the service at the church, as well as a meet-and-greet with several candidates up for election, including McHenry County clerk candidate Joe Tirio and Illinois 32nd Senate District candidate Craig Wilcox. Their Democratic opponents were not invited.
Pastor Scott K. Barrettsmith Sr. said in an email that the event has been canceled because of "private" and "personal" matters.
