She also had a sidelight business of marketing gift baskets made from Illinois products. But that wasn’t enough: Doyle decided she would make a run for the Illinois House.</p><p>“I was young, naive and thought I could run as a Republican in a district where it was 11:4 Democrat,” Doyle said.</p> Mon, 29 Jul 2013 10:36:32 +0000 Bill Wheelhouse 6215 at http://wuis.org Becky Doyle: Always A Farmer
