* The governor is really focused on those wicked DGA TV ads…

Media Advisory: Governor Rauner to Hold Media Availability Tomorrow Morning in Hanover Park

On Monday, Governor Rauner will visit Round Ground Metals in Hanover Park, IL and hold a media availability to address the Democratic Governors Association’s interference in the GOP primary.

* A Kennedy dirty trick? Looks like it. Notice the date of the first tweet…



* You probably won’t be surprised that none of these statewide officials appear on Casten’s endorsements web-page. So, this is yet another candidate mailer designed to make it look like someone has endorsements that he doesn’t actually have…

* Press release

Congressional candidate Chuy Garcia on Sunday called on Iris Millan and her campaign to cease and desist the unlawful use of his name and image in her campaign materials in the race for Illinois’ 4th House District. This letter was sent by Garcia’s campaign following a mailer misleading voters about Chuy Garcia’s endorsement in this race for State Representative.

Jesus “Chuy” Garcia endorsed Delia Ramirez for State Representative on December 17, 2017 because she has deeps roots in this district and is ready to transform Springfield.

Iris Millan, who according to Illinois Sunshine has received over 50% of her campaign donations from 1st Ward Alderman Proco ‘Joe’ Moreno, has sent misinformation to voters numerous times through an unknown organization called the Social Justice Fund. This is a continuation of the Millan campaign’s dishonesty and willingness to deceive voters for political gain. Ramirez called these tactics “shameful and not in the best interest of voters.”

The letter is here.

* Oh, for crying out loud…



* Running for judge while allegedly breaking the law. Lovely…



* More…

* Security of state voter rolls a concern as primaries begin: “It’s not something where you ever feel completely safe,” Matt Dietrich, spokesman for the Illinois State Board of Elections. “It’s something where you feel like you’re doing your best to protect against what could happen in a cyberattack.”

* Wheeling Township GOP Chair slams Rauner attempt to subvert Ives endorsement: Rauner has sought to use his prodigious checkbook to boost lagging enthusiasm for him among local GOP organizations. Even his hometown, local New Trier Township GOP refused to endorse him over Ives. Of all 30 suburban Cook County townships, Rauner performed best in New Trier in a hotly-contested 2014 primary, carrying 77 percent of the vote in a four-way race against state senators Bill Brady and Kirk Dillard and then Illinois State Treasurer Dan Rutherford.

* Editorial: Voters should do the vetting in primaries: After her primary opponent Lance Yednock entered the race, Bernal said a Democratic state representative asked her to leave the contest. After the holidays, she received a series of calls with the same request. Her answer stayed the same. On Jan. 15, Bernal said she met with Yednock and a high-ranking state official at a Spring Valley attorney’s office. She again was asked to end her campaign. Bernal told The Times on Thursday she would vote against Madigan for speaker.

    I saw one of those JBERRIOS signs with a sticker on top that says “What JB thinks of African Americans” and it has pictures of Obama, Jesse white and Emil Jones. A bunch of these signs are on Western near the Eisenhower for several blocks.

    Love the Cassidy death ray. Many can testify that it’s a powerful death ray indeed.

    running to Cassidy’s left? That would be like running to the right of Barry Goldwater….

    –On Monday, Governor Rauner will visit Round Ground Metals in Hanover Park, IL and hold a media availability to address the Democratic Governors Association’s interference in the GOP primary–

    You’d think the day before the election he’d be hammering his positive record of accomplishment that makes him worthy of re-election.

    What is that, again? Did the dog eat it?

    The constant, daily whining from these chief executives we have — not exactly Gary Cooper or John Wayne types.

    I was just wondering how the DGA commercial differ from Rauner running anti-Pritzker ads during the run up to the Democratic Primary. When Rauner does it to someone, is it ok? Oh I get it; it is only bad when it is done to Rauner. How silly of me. People it is time for the guy to be gone from Governor’s office. ABB–Anybody But Bruce

    LOL that JBerrios sign.

    I saw the JBERRIOS sign this morning driving east on Wellington near Ashland.
