Among the parade highlights were some civil war re-enactors, the Caputo's Cheese Truck, lots and lots of cheerleaders and drum corps marchers, and of course, our GOP candidates: Bob Dold for the 10th Congressional District, Sheriff Mark Curran, State Rep. Candidate Lauren Turelli, and many more. The Women's Republican Club of Lake Forest/Lake Bluff also had a bunch of "Freedom Umbrella" marchers with some take-back-our-government type signs.

Bob Dold and Lake County GOP Make Strong Showing In Lake Bluff; Dan Seals AWOL
I had a great seat for the Lake Bluff 4th of July parade this morning. The Lake County Republicans all made a great showing, while the Dems were few and far between. With the exception of State Senator Susan Garrett, State Rep. Karen May, and county clerk candidate Laura Tomsky, that was about it. No Dan Seals, even though this is right in the core of the 10th District. He probably was at the Highland Park parade, which is probably much more of a friendly audience (there were about 120 parade entries and I bugged out at 100 or so, so I guess there could have been some Team Seals reps bringing up the rear, but if there were, I did not spot 'em).
