MORRIS – Fresh off his endorsement interview with the Chicago Tribune, Grundy County States Attorney and Illinois Secretary of State Republican candidate Jason Helland criticized the media for not taking his candidacy seriously.
The Mazon resident held the meet and greet Thursday, with former gubernatorial candidate State Rep. Jeanne Ives (R-Wheaton) as special guest, at Montage Wine Bar and Spirits in downtown Morris.
“The Chicago media loves Jesse White,” Helland told the crowd of about 40 people in attendance. […]
In a post at his Capitol Fax blog on Aug. 16, Rich Miller wrote that Helland should lay off the ageism.
“You’re likely not gonna win this year, dude,” Miller wrote. “Don’t be remembered like this.”
Helland responded at Thursday’s meeting, saying that Miller was “a joke.”
