(TA Note- We've bumped this post back up to continue our discussion on IL-10 since Halloween is now over. Hope you didn't eat too much candy!)
Early in the campaign season, my friend Dr. Michael Menis, who heads the Chicago chapter of the Republican Jewish Coalition, called to tell me that the RJC planned to sponsor a GOP 10th District candidates forum after petitions were filed. That was a welcome relief, as the RJC always does a great job with events, and that left TA off the hook for trying to organize something to showcase our candidates.
Well, it's now about time to publicize that event, which will be held on Sunday November 15th, beginning at 6:00 p.m., Renaissance North Shore Hotel, 933 Skokie Blvd., Northbrook, IL 60062. There is a charge if you are not an RJC member, and RSVPs are required, so check the link for all of the details.
We've been talking quite a bit about the race for U.S. Senate here in Illinois, so let's use this as an excuse to get back to the 10th District and ask everyone to chime in on who you are supporting for the GOP nomination to succeed Mark Kirk in IL-10. You will notice the new "endorsement" bar on the right side of the page, and you may also notice that there is no endorsement (yet) for IL-10. So, let's hear your best arguments for each candidate and help us sort this out.
As usual, let's try to remain as positive as possible (understanding that part of primary races is to compare and contrast), but at the least, let's be respectful and polite. Thanks.
