Rutherford to name Steve Kim as running mate

Monday, Sep 2, 2013

Posted by Barton Lorimor (@bartonlorimor)

Adding…


More…

The Pontiac Republican made the announcement via Twitter, adding that a news conference is planned for Thursday morning in Chicago. Kim is an attorney from Northbrook, who ran for attorney general in 2010, losing to incumbent Lisa Madigan.

Rutherford added that the lieutenant governor would have a unique and substantive role in the Rutherford administration.

“(Kim) is someone that the public would feel comfortable with being governor if I was incapacitated,” Rutherford tweeted in an earlier hint of his runing mate choice.

Subscribers know more about some of the other candidates the Rutherford camp considered. Over the last 24 hours, Rutherford’s “clues” had been more direct…


Here’s footage of Kim giving Rutherford a lengthy introduction earlier this year

    Thanks for staying on it Barton. This dude is pretty boring, but I think he’s probably better than Kay Hatcher who would have gotten you nothing.

    Hopefully this guy still has contacts from running statewide. But from what I’ve heard, he didn’t work all that hard.

    I expect a few more announcements over the next week.

    Whew! Glad I waited for this.

    @FakeLisaMadigan - Rats! I was looking forward to a rematch! #LightweightLG

    @FakeBruceRauner - Nothing like inoculating @FakeBruceRauner by choosing someone to take over for you that is less qualified than me! #NoRecordDoesntBeatNoRecord

    @FakeRutherfordDan - wait for Dan’s Super-Secret message next, it will not disappoint #DrinkYourOvaltine #AChristmasStory

    Rutherford walks the walk of seeking to build a more diverse Illinois GOP. Good on him.

    Not that Kim is a token: he has an impressive business background. And he sure had guts to take on the thankless task of running against Lisa last time out.

    In these times where there is a raging debate over the contributions of immigrants, Kim is a walking, talking example of someone who has taken advantage of America’s opportunities and given back through work and service.

    The guy’s a partner in the law firm of Rosenberg, Kim and Jiminez — now that’s America baby!

    @FakeRutherfordDan Just wait for details on the “unique role!” #GuardingPongee #ItsROOTHNotRUTH #TweetThis

    Cannot believe Capt Fax fans are speechless over this tip Sen Lard expected to pick Rep Tracy tomorrow. This sets bar high for CousinBrucey.
    Does he pick someone from the ‘burbs (to offset city ties) a woman, a downstater, a whack job (to offset his lib ties)
    Maybe he will announce a referendum or like the Cubs once did a College of Lite Govs!


  6. - Amalia - Monday, Sep 2, 13 @ 6:42 pm:

    Great choice….cause I’m a Democrat. Brings very little to the table.


  7. - Rich Miller Sr - Monday, Sep 2, 13 @ 7:14 pm:

    Interesting clip. Thanks


  8. - Just Observing - Monday, Sep 2, 13 @ 8:12 pm:

    I’m not sure I get this pick. Kim is probably a nice, accomplished guy, but what does he really bring to the table? Votes? Not really except maybe from the Asian-American community but I don’t know how many votes that is in a GOP primary. Money? No, unless, again, the Asian community ponies up in support of an Asian candidate. Excitement? No.


  9. - John P. - Monday, Sep 2, 13 @ 10:34 pm:

    No surprise with him picking Kim.


  10. - Chad - Tuesday, Sep 3, 13 @ 6:53 am:

    Kim is competent and Low-key. He is an economic development-oriented lawyer I have worked with. Will be particularly attractive to ethnic minority populations — something that Rutherford already has some advantages with. Perhaps a move to get ethnic Democrats to cross-over?


  11. - Downstate GOP Faithless - Tuesday, Sep 3, 13 @ 7:06 am:

    Steve is a solid guy. I presume he was vetted fully and there is nothing that is going to hurt the team. This is where these LG nominations are interesting…nobody cares unless its a slow news day or the individual in question does something stupid! But Steve is a quality person and when Dillard announces Jil Tracy I will say the same…she is quality as well
