So who are you going to vote for in the primary for Governor?

I'm glad the SCOTUS finally removed the made-up "constitutional right" the D's cry must not be regulated in any way (while infringing the actual enumerated right which is the only one the constitution expressly states "shall not be infringed), BUT ... the timing couldn't be worse as far as state wide elections in states like this liberal craphole are concerned.  A large part of the right and center has moved out of here, especially from Crook county.  So, it's doubly hard for an R to get the votes needed in Cook and the collar counties to win the governor's mansion as it is, and now the goofs have a rallying cry of lies to run on.  The decision in Dobbs has pretty much guaranteed that Illinois will get even more liberal in terms of abortion "rights" and the numbers of abortions performed in this state.  But, the Democrats have never been big on running on the truth, and most of their voters are brain dead automatons who believe the lies without any effort to independently check on their veracity outside of the "news," which of course will "confirm" the authenticity of the Democrat lies.  In a nutshell, it's 4 more years of Jabba, Welch and komrads.

Illinois is lost and a majority of voters are on board with the direction of the state.  My daughter has a patient in Sycamore who is a Republican state rep. who thinks the governor had done alot of good for the state and is easy to work with. 

Stockholm Syndrome at its most obvious.

 

Ive almost reached the point of not voting. It means nothing in this state. We are discussing moving and my wife is not totally negative anymore. 

This morning after seeing Jaba on MSNBC she left saying what country would be any better. Never heard or suggested that before.

Obama was the recipient of a lot of "luck" in the Dem primary as well, if you recall.  There were about 7 candidates in the field, and Blair Hull was steadily leading the pack by a huge margin with 36%, well ahead of the second-polling candidate, Dan Hynes, and Obummer was near the bottom with a paltry 5% support.  Late in the cycle, allegations of spousal abuse magically leaked from Hull's sealed Cook County divorce case file, likely aimed at helping Hynes over the hump.  It backfired, and in a poorly-timed public rebellion against nepotism in government, Hull's voters went overwhelmingly for Obummer, who came out of nowhere to win the primary.  Obummer became U.S. Senator simply because of conveniently-leaked allegations of spousal abuse against his opponents in both the primary and general elections, and the entire country suffered because of it.  Yeaaaaa, Illinois

I don't think luck had anything to do with that election. 

 

I can't believe gun owners actually voted for odummy.

 

The first sound bite I ever saw of him, he was saying that he didn't believe in private gun ownership and a bunch of stupid gun owners voted for him

If our house wasn't tore up, we would sell and be gone last year

I keep hearing "I want to vote for X as he has more of what I believe in." Next I hear "I am voting for Y because he has a better chance in the elections." I understand everybody wants to be on the winning side, but sometimes you have to stand up for what you REALLY believe in. Rant Over!

I never vote for most likely anymore. 

   It's really the non voters that decide every election. Especially primaries.

  If they would band together, they could elect anyone they want.

There was a large segment of idiotic gun owners who convinced themselves that if they did not vote for Obummer, they were "racists."  Obummer benefitted heavily from irrational "White guilt."  Not to mention the large number of Democrat gun owners who would gladly let the D's take away their 2A rights in exchange for supporting other unconstitutional Dem "values," such as the "right" to an abortion, open borders, gay marriage, etc.  

 

I'm not saying that abortions should be illegal across the board.  Nor am I saying that gays should not be allowed to marry.  I'm saying that these are not "constitutional rights."  It's a concept that most Dems just can't seem to wrap their tiny little hive minds around.  "Cancel" non-Kommies for expressing dissenting opinions despite the 1st Amendment?  Hey, no problem.  Take away Americans' 2A rights to own anything other than a pump action shotgun?  Hey, no problem.  Limit abortions to 60% through the pregnancy?  "OMG!!!  OUR CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHTS!!!"

CHICAGO — Illinois Republicans have descended into infighting and finger-pointing on the eve of the state’s primaries as a MAGA-aligned candidate for governor appears poised to claim the nomination over the GOP establishment favorite who spent $50 million only to see his prospects collapse.

Richard Irvin, the mayor of Aurora, not only is expected to lose Tuesday, but he could end up in third place or worse, according to recent polls. That’s despite the tens of millions in dollars that a hedge fund billionaire poured into his candidacy — all part of an effort to propel a candidate who party leaders believed could give Democratic Gov. J.B. Pritzker a tough race in a state where Republicans have typically had to position themselves as moderates to win statewide.

Interviews with more than a dozen Illinois Republicans point to external and internal forces driving Irvin’s flagging levels of support, which have exposed sharp splits within the party between moderates and MAGA conservatives that mirror divides playing out in other states and nationally.

Meanwhile, the GOP establishment, long frustrated by the state’s Democratic Party dominance, is experiencing its own rift. It’s angry over how the Irvin campaign was run, about how he was drafted in the first place and, most significantly, that the best chance Republicans had to defeat Pritzker may have already slipped through their fingers. 

“This is the biggest debacle I’ve ever seen. It’s the biggest screw-up I’ve ever seen and the biggest waste of money I’ve ever seen,” said former Illinois Republican Party Chair Pat Brady, who is doing communications work for candidate Gary Rabine

 

 

So it goes when Illinois 'republicans' are no more than Dem/Lib/Tard/commie 'lite'...

It's kind of sad how hard it is to tell the difference between a west suburban Republican and a west suburban Democrat.

 

I don’t know about that,  Raja Krishnamoorthi is a west suburban Democrat, IL 8 Congressional district, he is also a self proclaimed “progressive” (progressives hate our country and constitution).
If you can’t spot a progressive socialists/communists you need to re-evaluate a lot of things.

I kind of liked Rabine and didn't know much about him.

 I didn't have time to check candidates out as much as I usually do. I also seemed to have trouble finding much info on candidates with searches.

  The biggest deterrent to voting for Rabine was Brady's and another Fudd's support. 

  The non-voters will kill us.

 The Democrats out voted us by around 100,000 votes.

IL republicans are a lot like KS republicans.  They all feel good when they lose elections by sticking to their rabid conservative ideology.  The winners of elections get to make the rules, so you should prioritize supporting candidates that can win, then refocus those winners on your agenda.

That is a great plan but when in history has it ever worked?  We all know once these leaches get into office, you and I no longer matter.

I'm sure most of us (myself included) voted for Bailey.  Let's be honest, though.  This is Illinois.  Bailey not only made abortion an issue, but had President Trump stump for and endorse him.  The general will by Demonrat design revolve around TDS and "taking away their constitutional right to reproductive healthcare."  The local news will be like Pritzker campaign infomercials.  And the automatons will eat it up.  Even with this economy, crime, illegal immigration and Illinois' sanctuary b.s., Piggy will garner around 70%.

The claim in the commercial is he wants to ban abortions, I've not see where he actually said that.   Where's the video?

WLS reported 1of 5 voters showed up in Chicago, lowest in 8 yrs.

Listening to liberal news you would think the recent SCOTUS rulings was a real energizer for their base.  Clearly it is not.  People are seeing the real effects of all the dumycrap ideas like reducing fossil fuels and defunding local police and it is costing them actual money, the only true energizer to vote.

I think political strategists will study the Illinois Governor and Attorney General races and try to emulate the Democrat's strategy for years.  It was masterful.  Get your opponents to select the candidates with the least chance of beating you.  It worked.  I bet they already have the hit pieces against Bailey and DeVore already polished up and ready for distribution when the timing is optimal.  They were easy enough to find and craft.  I saw on one betting sight this morning that JB's odds are now at 94% up from 85%.
