I saw this guy's commercial today on TV. He wants to run for gov.

Anyone heard of him?

He wants to be "a better reformer" than Blago, calls Blago someone that "breaks promises" etc.

Anyone heard of him? What area is he familliar with?

Thanks.

I wouldn't even worry about it. Anyone who starts campaigning this early has no chance anyway.

Wow.

Thanks for the opinions.

He just lost my "support".

Do you all think very highly of Ray LaHood still?

I know that Dan Rutherford is one of the good guys, but I think he's working his way up in gov't till he wants to be Gov.

Gidwitz looks like he should be wearing the checkered pants with the white belt and white shoes and a silk shirt opened at the neck to show a bucnh of cheap gold chains.

I don't know anything about Gidwitz but he looks like a slimeball.

I still like Oberweis. Hopefully he can sell politics like he sells ice cream!

Seriously, if we can get someone to work upstate and downstate we'll be great in defeating Blago.

Thanks for the opinions.

If you guys have big questions you would like me to ask him, let me know.


You're meeting him?

Cool!

I was gonna ask you to ask him about CCW, but I already saw that.

Are ya gonna ask him about gun control?

Of course I'm gonna ask him about gun control.


Do you talk to legislators often Cody? I am just curious as to why you're meeting LaHood.

I don't have any concrete recollection about this, but from the last gov race, i thought that Oberweis was a bit weak on 2nd A. I have family in the area where Lahood is from and I think he is a bit better on 2A issues, but this is all from memory.

Can't say that I do. The only legislator I ever talked to regularly was Larry Walsh, state senator from my area. The only reason I talked to him was we had alot of mutual friends, and often drank at the same establishment in Manhattan,Il.

Lahood is the keynote speaker for a conference I'm part of. I'm sure he doesn't expect to have to play 20 Questions, but what he doesn't know can't hurt him, right?

I honestly don't know where he stands on all second amendment rights. Unforunately in this state that is made a small part of the election unless you mention taking away the right to hunt or restrict shotguns. Hopefully with either of these men running we can make this an issue and maybe get some of the southern Dems to come to the side of good.



LaHood's my guy--he's been very solid in the US House. Recommend without reservation.

It'll be interesting to see who gets in the race.
