    Speaking of 2024 speculation, it’d be nice if reporters would recognize that JB cannot state his intention to run for president without triggering an immediate requirement to file with the FEC and to comply with quite a few laws regarding what he can do, how he can do it, and how he spends money.

    So, he can’t answer in the affirmative. There’s also no legal difference between an “exploratory committee” and a regular presidential campaign committee, they just call it exploratory so it’s less embarrassing when the candidate decides not to run.

    JB benefits from others talking about the possibility both in Illinois and nationally, but it’s not hard hitting journalism to ask him a question that he can’t legally answer in the affirmative at this time.

    If he is ever planning on running for President a random reporter at a political event is not getting the scoop by pressing him on the issue and a state governor giving a non answer about running for president isn’t news and isn’t important. It’s also lazy to keep asking him about it
    If a journalist wants to have fun with this topic, the questions should tie back into his administration, “Do you think that the staffing difficulties and contempt of court charges at your Department of Children and Family services could detract from your national image if it was reported on nationwide?”

    Asking him a yes or no question solely about running for president is a waste of everyone’s time.

    It is also very unlikely that Biden would ditch his VP, and if Biden decides not to run we probably won’t hear about that affirmatively for at least another 12 months.

    The Governor has a lot that needs to he addressed that his administration is directly responsible for, let’s press him on those issues and why they seem to be lingering with no one being held accountable for the failure to address them.

    Considering that The new Bost district ( and my new district after redistricting ) is rated as Trump Plus 43 that should be quite a Primary race with each of them trying to more Trumpier than the other.

    I pity those poor Republicans that will have to pick between these two. I’m glad I will not engage in that fight.

    Mary Miller chose to run against Rodney Davis… or you can also say (not really, but new districts, you don’t need to live in-district) Rodney chose where he ran, and Bost faced neither.

    It’s not that Bost is the untouchable incumbent, but if Bailey thinks Bost is his path, it’s not like a new map made incumbents who were going to need to run against each other wanted to run against Bost.

    Lauren Underwood needs a campaign staff change. https://www.shawlocal.com/news/election/2022/11/09/after-victory-underwood-campaign-spokesman-tweets-republicans-can-go-to-hell/

    Bigger needs a bigger chair.

    Very cool for Bigger to be getting this attention in a good-humored way. I hope he’s enjoying it as much as he seems to be.

    Dick Bigger Jr. has no way to go but…up.


  8. - Who Dat - Thursday, Nov 10, 22 @ 1:33 pm:

    I find the Dick Bigger scenario funny and hope he is having the time of his life.

    That said, the next time someone is offended by harmless fun, I am calling “Dick Bigger”. A better term than “Lighten up
    Francis”.
