Question of the day - Golden Horseshoe Awards

* The 2015 Golden Horseshoe Award for Best Illinois Congresscritter goes to Rodney Davis…
(H)e has been able to win 2 straight times with the DCCC targeting him and in 14 it was not even close. He is a moderate Republican who votes his district and works his district. Without JBT around, he also was the first (and I believe only so far) Republican to criticize the Governor’s attack on public sector unions.
* And the 2015 Mike McClain Golden Horseshoe Award for Best Statehouse Insider goes to John Lowder…
John is most knowledgeable of the process and inner dealing of statehouse policy and Budget development and strategy. He is always willing to share his insights. Has made the transformation from staff to contract lobbying with ease with great respect for the actors on both sides of the aisle as well as the press. He’ll be around for a long time.
Congrats to both!
