Shaw to challenge Rep. Miller

Tuesday, Dec 20, 2005

I told you about this yesterday.

Nearly a lifetime in politics and two recent election setbacks apparently have not suppressed Robert Shaw’s desires to rejoin the political scene. […]

The former Chicago alderman and Cook County Board of Review commissioner filed Monday for a run in the Democratic primary for the state representative seat currently held by David Miller.

Shaw was soundly defeated earlier this year when he challenged longtime South Holland Village President Don DeGraff. […]

Another candidate, who works under William Shaw in the village of Dolton, filed petitions announcing her candidacy against the Rev. James Meeks, state senator from the 15th legislative district. […]

Howard, who also serves as spokesman for Meeks’ challenger, Carmella Glenn, said she works on the youth commission in Dolton and is a longtime child welfare advocate.

Strange doings down south. More in tomorrow’s Capitol Fax.

Consider this a primary politics open thread.

    They might get trounced again.

    Miller will be just fine in this primary. He is intelligent, works hard, and is one of the best members we have. Plus he knows how to work his district. On a more important note, please put David and his family in your thoughts as his father passed away this past weekend.

    Thanks!

    It seems we WILL have some important/exciting Dem Primaries. Now, question is, whom does this help/hurt?

    1)Activists always vote.
    2)Primaries (esp exciting ones) tend to drive Joe Average to vote.

    So, my take is that the winners are:

    1) The Major. Any hope Ceg. had was a low turnout where her local connections. The media frenzy of a gubernatorial primary and Chicago primaries will increase Dem voter turnout. I assume the major will get more air cover (sorry, couldn’t resist) than Cegalis, this helps her.

    2) Melissa Bean. She doesn’t have an opponent, but her opponents will pay more for their air time, weakening them. Also, they’ll get less coverage.

    3) Oberweis. Contested congressional campaigns will bring up immigration, keeping his issue alive without him having to do it. Also, see below.

    Losers:

    1) JBT. Dem voters will be pulling a Dem ballot.

    2) Gun Ban Rod. Never helps to have an opponenet. Yes, 14MM is more than say 5 or 6. But 5 MM lets you get your message out, and that softens up GB for the winner of the Repub primary. Also, if feelings run high, there might be less efforts for GB in cook co and the city come November.

    3) Prince Obama. (This is a longshot, but I can hope, can’t I?) He might get caught in the crossfire between the various Dem organizations in the city/county. It’s not too hard for a Senator to stay above it, but his involvement in a primary shows he might not do so.

    I wish I could edit/delete the above. Here is what I meant to type.

    ) The Major. Any hope Ceg. had was a low turnout where her local connections would help her since they might be more activist, and less swayed by media buys. The media frenzy of a gubernatorial primary and Chicago primaries will increase Dem voter turnout. I assume the major will get more air cover (sorry, couldn’t resist) than Cegalis, this helps Maj. Duckworth.


  5. - Lt. Guv - Tuesday, Dec 20, 05 @ 11:57 am:

    Both Shaws should just go crawl back under their rock.


  6. - Randall Sherman - Tuesday, Dec 20, 05 @ 5:32 pm:

    The Shaws will have to be whipped and whipped and whipped until they either completely crushed or the U.S. Attorney gets enough goods on them. But they (and their allies) will be crushed this March.


  7. - Josh Hoyt - Tuesday, Dec 20, 05 @ 8:03 pm:

    David Miller is one of the finest people I know in public life. He should be supported. David has won contested primary after contested primary, including one after the remap where he was pitted against both a white incumbent and the previous state rep who he had defeated two years earlier. The theory was that they were going to divide the black vote, and the white guy would skate in. But Rep. Miller beat that squeeze play, so he will handle the Shaws handily, as he always has. And the legislature will be a lot better off for it!
