Conservatives always win by huge margins in Illinois. If we could just nominate more conservatives then people will come out to vote in general election in droves! Even Chicago would elect a Republican then because now all the Republicans just stay home, because they don’t have a real conservative option to get them to the polls.

In case you haven’t caught on by now, this whole campaign is a sham orchestrated by Proft and Rauner to position Rauner toward the center.
Your judgement may be colored by how you already feel. If you’ve been here, you’ve got a much greater awareness of who’s who and what’s what?
The ads are actually very good and very strong. If you’ve heard, but had no previous personal experience with her, and you’re evaluating her carefully for the first time; these are excellent ads.
Straight forward. Direct. She looks as confident and attractive as we’ve ever seen her. She says who she is. She says who he is. She doesn’t come across as a maniac, but exactly the opposite. Rational, thoughtful, and well spoken. She makes the argument for change and asks for your vote. The “vote for Her” line is a nice and subtle (but not too subtle) reminder of other things orbiting these days.
It’s well paced, well timed, and well executed. Whoever directed these is someone different than who’s been on the job to date. Lighting good, angle good, professional clothing, good colors, good make up…and for the only time I can remember; a pleasant and inviting tone.
I feel the same sadness as I felt when I saw Trump signs in people’s yards now when I see Ives signs. I just know that I can never be friends with those people. I’m good with conservatism, but not bigotry and racism. Ives is a bigot and racist. She and her Proft/Breen ilk need to be voted out of every office they seek.
