    First blush, quick thought.

    With Durkin and McConchie yielding to their caucuses and not only stepping aside but wishing well the new leader(s)…

    I can’t think of a time where both leaders were not only dumped, but as of this typing, both leaders are still going to be seated in those caucuses.

    Are either pro-choice republicans? Are either proponents of same sex marriage? Are either considered thoughtful to 2A issues where mass shootings are not summarily dismissed?


  2. - Oswego Willy - Wednesday, Nov 16, 22 @ 8:16 am:

    And, after McConchie tried to be leader, not only does McConchie get the job, she gets support from unlikely sources.

    The leaders of the ILGOP?

    (In alphabetical order)

    Bost
    Curran
    LaHood
    McConchie
    Miller

    Those are your ILGOP leaders

    Where exactly is change being seen to reflect the voter rejection?


  3. - 47th Ward - Wednesday, Nov 16, 22 @ 8:21 am:

    Wow, Jim Nowlan thinks the ILGOP problems will be solved by offering a “constructive, appealing” program. Then he suggests they sue to reverse the legislative maps. Then he says new, young voices are needed, and he suggests Jim Edgar is the guy to lead them.

    With political advice like that, can it be long before the ILGOPs are back in the majority?


  4. - The Real Downstate - Wednesday, Nov 16, 22 @ 8:39 am:

    McCombie won 31-8. Anyone know who the no votes were?


  5. - Oswego Willy - Wednesday, Nov 16, 22 @ 8:39 am:

    Maybe Jim Nowlan should sit out a few plays.

    He cost the GOP an ILSC seat…

    Heck of a job, Jim.


  6. - Rabid - Wednesday, Nov 16, 22 @ 8:41 am:

    newly minted house leader is a young gun


  7. - Amalia - Wednesday, Nov 16, 22 @ 8:52 am:

    NW suburbs don’t go for a Republican….Podgorski. It’s official….change out there big time.


  8. - Electric Lemonade - Wednesday, Nov 16, 22 @ 10:23 am:

    Congrats to Maggie Trevor on her election to the Cook County Board of Commissioners! She has come up on the short end of elections a couple of times, and it is great to see her get across the finish line with a win


  9. - JS Mill - Wednesday, Nov 16, 22 @ 10:52 am:

    The house ilgop leadership change is interesting to me. I have listened to McCombie speak (to a friendly room) on a couple of occasions. I was probably one of the few that didn’t agree with many of her policy positions, but she struck me a smart, articulate, and moderate. Unlike so many other rural ilgop legislators, she did not complain about Chicago or spend her time telling us how unfair everything is. I think she is a pragmatist. I am not sure how different that is policy wise from Durkin, but she is very different when it comes to the endless ilgop grievance stance.

    Hopefully this is good for Illinois government.


  10. - Old time Independent - Wednesday, Nov 16, 22 @ 11:28 am:

    Maggie Trevor should send a Thank You card to Cook County Chairman/ CC Commissioner Sean Morrison for doing nothing to help a good candidate like Matt Podorski. Under Morrison the Cook GOP has lost every CC Board seat 4 , one BOR, one WRec, State treasurer, State Comptroller and Governor. He didn’t carry Cook for any of them not one. And recently his friend Mike Z gave him $200,000 from a Griffin fund and Morrison didn’t help one other GOP Candidate. How does this guy keep getting a pass from the other 79 CC Committeeman?


  11. - Jibba - Wednesday, Nov 16, 22 @ 11:33 am:

    ==Thus, the Illinois Republican Party needs to have a constructive, appealing program in place as the Trump phenomenon fades away.==

    Hard to argue with that, however you’re not going to be relevant if you think the most serious problems are:

    ==Illinois is struggling with population loss, as well as job growth that has been slower than nationwide==


  12. - Amalia - Wednesday, Nov 16, 22 @ 11:36 am:

    @Old Time Independent, maybe the problem with Podgorski, even in a lower than expected D turnout, is that his far right wing policies don’t fly even as he tries to avoid them. Calling the League of Women Voters far left in their politics and refusing their debate is all on Podgorski. Maybe HIS polling was inaccurate on that.


  13. - Friendly Bob Adams - Wednesday, Nov 16, 22 @ 11:53 am:

    As far as one can learn on the internet, Jim Nowlan last served in elective office in 1973. He lost his last election running for lieutenant governor in 1972. He won exactly one election in 1968.

    So it’s been a good long while since Nowlan has had experience with winning elections. Not sure why anyone pays attention to him.


  14. - Old time Independent - Wednesday, Nov 16, 22 @ 11:58 am:

    -Amalia- point taken but Morrisons record is a disaster as Chairman he undoubtedly is the worse Chair the CC GOP has ever had. A far far right wing Right to life no exemptions and a election denier just to start. He also verbally threatened every committeeman to support Irvin or suffer the consequences of Griffins money. Porter, Tracey and Morrison need to all resign ASAP


  15. - Amalia - Wednesday, Nov 16, 22 @ 1:04 pm:

    OTI-so the politics of Morrison match Podgorski. Podgorski just hid them better. Most people in the Chicago area are not of the Eastern Bloc bent. Not talking about abortion means you have something to hide.


  16. - Dotnonymous - Wednesday, Nov 16, 22 @ 2:11 pm:

    Why is Jim Nowlin’s’ opinion noteworthy…again?
