… Another Newspaper Endorsement for Bruce Rauner [#Illinois Governor]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Tuesday,October 28th,2014

.. and this one is a big surprise …

.. why ? it is the Chicago Sun – Times …

.. [h/t — m.NationalReview.com]..
.. [link] to the newspaper endorsement …

.. the timing could not be better . EArly voting has begun in Illinois , and the endorsements of both the Tribune and the Sun – Times will [or should be] be of help to Rauner on gathering votes from suburbanites in the Chicagoland area and the surrounding countines …

.. downstate , the folks could not care less . Up around Chicago , and the surrounding counties , it matters a lot , or , hopefully it will . Keeping Quinn ‘ s margin ‘ s down in the Chicagoland area [like what happened in the DemoCrap primary] will be of great help to Rauner and the rest of the GOP ticket ….

… Rauner is Up 4 in Illinois [#Illinois Governor]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Thursday,October 23rd,2014

.. and , hopefully , he is there to stay …

.. [h/t — m.NationalReview.com]..
.. [link] to the poll result …

.. Bruce Rauner has had a couple of rocky weeks . He once had a solid 8 to 10 point lead on his DemoCrap opponent , Governor Pat Quinn . That evaporated , and Rauner even fell behind Quinn for the first few weeks of October …

.. that now seems to have changed . Rauner has withstood the DemoCrap slimebombs , taken their best hits , and has come back with a gusto . The superior GOP ground game in Illinois should help . Also , a liberal dose of $$ from Rauner [who is worth more than $100 million] and some spare $$ from the GOP campaign committees should also help out …

.. I am still thinking that Bruce Rauner will be Illinois ‘ next Governor . If the election had been held earlier this month , Quinn would have survived . Not now . Rauner is now charging like gangbusters , and is peaking at the right time …

… Ouch — Another Endorsement [#Illinois Governor]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Tuesday,October 21st,2014

.. the Chicago Tribune endorsed a candidate in Illinois …

.. and it was not Pat Quinn ..

.. Bruce Rauner ? You got it …

.. [h/t — m.NationalReview.com]…
.. [link] to the endorsement article …

.. the Triune [and 2 other Chicagoland area papers , the Daily Herald and Crain ‘ s Chicago Business] cited Rauner ‘ s business experience and his outsider moxie . Quinn , whose supposed ” surge ” in the polls is an ad – imposed barrage , is yet still trailing Rauner in the polls by 2 to 3 points …

.. I think that Rauner will end up winning this one , especially after kicking Quinn ‘ s ass on the debate stage . Scandals coming out one after the other the last few weeks will help persuade Illinois voters to toss out the rascal …

… Nice Commercial , Coach [#Ditka]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Monday,September 15th,2014

.. Coach Mike Ditka does a political commercial for GOP governor candidate Bruce Rauner in the Illinois governor ‘ s race …

.. [h/t — Newsmax.com]..
.. [link] to the commercial …

.. Rauner is still leading , by around 9 to 11 % …. so far , so good …. and the Illinois DemoCraps are beginning to panic over the downballot races , as well as up-for-grabs races in the state legislature …

.. stay tuned …

… Interesting Poll Results — in Illinois [#you bet!]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Thursday,September 11th,2014

.. no , this is not an outlier , nor is it a joke .

.. Illinois Governor Pat Quinn is in big trouble .

.. Bruce Rauner has not won the race . But , his message is getting through to Illinois voters , and that has to scare the hell out of DemoCraps nationwide . Because , if it will sell in Illinois , boy , it will sell elsewhere in the good ol ‘ U.S.A. …

.. [h/t — politics.SunTimes.com]..
.. [link] to the news article ..

.. Basically , Rauner is leading Quinn , 47 % to 34 % . Ouch . Illinois voters are not entierely sold on Rauner ‘ s economic plan . But , they are much more willing to give Rauner a fighting chance to give his plan a chance to work . Which also means his potentioal victory , if it happens , could have some serious coattails …

.. the Illinois legislature is , as one would think , controlled by the DemoCraps . It is 40 to 19 in the State Senate [one – half of seats up] , and it is 71 to 48 in the State House [all seats up] …. the Senate would likely not swing , but the State House is different …. Also , a number of moderate Democrats could be persuaded to switch parties . It has happened else , so why not Illinois …

.. with the State Senate , it depends on what seats that are up . The Illinois House is a different matter . Things got realclose after 2010 , but then came redistrictiong , and now the current advantage . A large victory , combined with a swing in one or both chambers would be of huge help to a Gov Rauner …

.. Rauner is no moderate . He is definitely a conservative . Not quite a TEa Partier , though . Conservative in Illinois is more than good enough …
