A lot of us have felt betrayed by our governor, and fear that his straying from our Republican values will hurt the Illinois Republican party. Many conservatives want to send a message to the Republican party, and allow J. B. Pritzker into our homes. But is this a foolish judgement? I don't mean a judgement of what is right or wrong, but a judgement of consequence. Which is more important party unity or party purity? Is allowing an angry lion into our homes in the best interest of Illinois families and the economic interests of our state? Please make your judgement carefully. ... See MoreSee Less

If you missed yesterday's candidate forum at AH library, you missed a doozy. Our State Rep Tom Morrison provided us some real entertainment at the expense of his Democratic challenger Maggie Trevor. When Trevor tried to clarify her support for Michael Madigan as speaker by saying that she will decide after she sees who the candidates are, Morrison simply replied, "There has been only one candidate for the last 18 terms". With this most of the audience broke the rules and busted out laughing. Morrison was on fire yesterday. At one point, he exposed Trevor's pact with Personal PAC to oppose all restrictions on abortion. "um, uh, but uh ... ". And, yet the Democrats will still vote for her. We need to get out and Vote!
To keep Tom honest, it has only been 17 terms of Speaker Madigan thus far, not 18 yet. Last year, one Democrat voted "present", otherwise not a single Democrat has ever voted for someone other than Michael Madigan except in 1995 when Republicans controlled the chamber. Madigan is largely funding Maggie Trevor, and she is trying to put herself out there as an independent voice. I have only one good thing to say about Trevor. She is very bad at lying. And I will say nothing of her little slip-up when the moderator had to remind her that she is female not male. I told you it was entertaining.

Democrats kept moving the goal posts, but when Senator Susan Collins got the ball she carried it across the goal line and scored a touch down. Some of us may disagree with Senator Collins on certain issues, but today she rose above the noise and reminded us of the right and proper constitutional role of the Senate to advise and consent. Now let's finish this game and put Judge Brett Kavanaugh on the Supreme Court. ... See MoreSee Less
