Tuesday, Jul 8, 2014

* From a press release…

Dear Members of the Media,

Former Democratic Candidate for Governor, Tio Hardiman has decided to run for United States Senate against Mark Kirk in 2016. Tio Hardiman made his decision to run for United States Senate after speaking with his supporters and gaining statewide recognition by securing 125,500 votes and winning 30 counties in downstate Illinois which represents 28.1 percent of the statewide vote in Illinois during the 2014 Democratic Primary. “Mark Kirk is out of touch with the working class and poor people of Illinois.”-Tio Hardiman. Mark Kirk voted against raising the minimum wage to $10.00 per hour and extending unemployment benefits for unemployed workers across the nation.

Additionally, Tio Hardiman plans to endorse United States Senator Richard Durbin.

Tio’s Platform Issues will include:

1. Raising the Minimum Wage
2. Ending the Culture of Corruption
3. Combating Illegal Gun Trafficking
4. Reducing Violence
5. Immigration Reform
6. Strengthening Animal Welfare Laws

* The Question: Your recommended slogans for Hardiman’s 2016 campaign?
