Operation Save Forby
Friday, Oct 29, 2004
Governor Rod Blagojevich was down in southern Illinois today to announce a multi-million-dollar clean coal initiative and help state Sen. Gary Forby’s campaign.
The governor heaped praise on the appointed incumbent, who is in a tough re-election race.
My brother was there (he owns a couple of papers in the region). “It was ‘Gary Forby Day,’” was how Devin described it.
UPDATE: From comments section comes this valuable insight:
As unpopular as Blagojevich is in Southern Illinois, this may blow up in Forby’s face, $15 million dollars or not.
