Hardiman selects running mate

Wednesday, Aug 9, 2017

* The State Board of Elections’ website is down (again), but the last time I checked Hardiman didn’t have an active committee.

Press release…

Democratic Candidate for Governor, Tio Hardiman has selected Patricia Avery from Central Illinois as his running mate for Lieutenant Governor. Avery will bring her governmental experience, and her ability to work with people from all walks of life to the ticket. “Power, money, and influence are drowning out the voices of everyday people. That is why Tio Hardiman and I are running the “People’s Campaign,” representing all citizens and giving voice and the power back to the people of Illinois.”- Patricia Avery

“It’s a great honor to have Avery on board because she brings a wealth of experience and her passion for public service to the ticket. The primary election is crowded but we will never under estimate or take for granted the voters of Illinois and their desire for change. Illinoisans over the past three years have witnessed a Governor whose “turn around agenda” has left Illinois in the ditch, with a six billion dollar deficit, and with no real solutions. Our citizens are hurting, and left with nothing but empty promises. Avery and I, with the people’s help aim to bring back the sunshine with our strong ticket and put Illinois back on track. This is what you call a match made in Illinois -Powered by the People.” – Tio Hardiman

We will make our announcement on at 11:00 am on Thursday, August 10, 2017 in West Side Park, near the Lincoln monument, 400 W. University, Champaign, IL 61821

    Uh, her bio says that Barack Obama’s speech at the 2004 DNC convention was “infamous”. A mostly harmless mistake I’m sure, but they’ll probably want to go back to the thesaurus on that one.

    Well that explains why Tio isn’t answering my emails.

    I really thought I was a finalist.


  3. - Anonymous - Wednesday, Aug 9, 17 @ 3:22 pm:

    This should be fun.


  4. - Arsenal - Wednesday, Aug 9, 17 @ 3:24 pm:

    I’ve selected my running mate, too.


  5. - Arthur Andersen - Wednesday, Aug 9, 17 @ 3:31 pm:

    This will be entertaining. Pat Avery makes Carol Ammons look like Coretta Scott King.


  6. - Morty - Wednesday, Aug 9, 17 @ 3:41 pm:

    How do you break the news that he really doesn’t need a running mate to Tio gently?


  7. - Northsider - Wednesday, Aug 9, 17 @ 3:41 pm:

    Who™ picks Whom™.


  8. - Ron Burgundy - Wednesday, Aug 9, 17 @ 3:51 pm:

    I’m shocked… he didn’t just decide he could do both jobs himself.


  9. - A guy - Wednesday, Aug 9, 17 @ 3:56 pm:

    Can’t believe in a state this big that there wasn’t a qualified lady out there named “Tia”.


  10. - Amalia - Wednesday, Aug 9, 17 @ 4:08 pm:

    Tio, you know you are a phony, just move on with your life. this is wasting the time of the citizens.


  11. - A guy - Wednesday, Aug 9, 17 @ 4:28 pm:

    I’m agreeing with you Amalia. But seeing your nick name made me think that he could ask someone with your name to join him on the ticket.

    Tio-Ama. Say it out loud.

    That would be the key to locking up the Hispanic vote, wouldn’t it? (snarkinsearchofforgiveness)

    His running mate last time, Brunell Donald became the Chairman of the Trump Campaign Diversity Council


  13. - Stones - Wednesday, Aug 9, 17 @ 5:00 pm:

    I wish Tio would just go away. He’s the only one who takes himself seriously.


  14. - Ghost - Wednesday, Aug 9, 17 @ 5:04 pm:

    To paraphrase my favorite former senate leader…. Tio who?


  15. - A guy - Wednesday, Aug 9, 17 @ 5:04 pm:

    ==He’s the only one who takes himself seriously.==

    Can you get some confirmation that he actually does??


  16. - Blue dog dem - Wednesday, Aug 9, 17 @ 7:55 pm:

    Who is Tito landrum?
