It’s been nearly two weeks since the status quo elections of 2022 that disappointed Republicans but gave Democrats little to cheer for other than a sigh of relief. It is huge that Democrats kept control of the Senate. They will continue to stack the judiciary with hard-left judges for two more years. Pray for the […]

As of this posting, Republicans got 52.3% of the popular vote.  I’d rather be the party winning 52.3 percent than the one losing it. Every two years, the entire House is up for election.  If that 52.3 percent were evenly distributed, the Republicans would end up with up with 227 seats.  We might not be […]

On the radio this morning I heard Keith Pekau say something shocking. In his race for IL 6th congressional district he said he actually won the part of his district comprised of Chicago and Cook County, but the area he lost was DuPage County.  That makes some sense. My part of Chicago (undoubtedly one of […]

NOT by mail. This year’s election day in the US is November 8th – always the first Tuesday after the first Monday, by federal law. Other than setting dates for federal elections, the Constitution gives states and localities the responsibility for how elections are conducted. Preview Open

Why Electing Speaker Donald Trump Would Be Best for Everyone

 

Let’s face it: we need to put Trump somewhere until he’s struck with dementia or he visits what Shakespeare called the “undiscovered country.”

What better position than Speaker of the House of Representatives. He doesn’t have to be a member of Congress. And, this way, he doesn’t have to run for President again. But, best of all, he gets to be at the center of attention. Who wouldn’t want to read the expression on his face as Biden is (nervously, to be sure) giving a SOTU address? Now, lest you think this is purely tongue-in-cheek or fanciful thinking, keep in mind that at least 4 groups benefit.

Let’s walk through it:

Working with many expert national political prognosticators over the years – and having spent time with about 35 congressional and US Senate campaigns in 25 states – my eyes are constantly peeled for signs and wonders of trends that portend results, including upset victories. Conventional wisdom suggests a GOP tsunami this Fall. Past election trends […]

The Republican Party … thanks almost entirely to the disastrous policies of President Brandon and owing nothing to any compelling policy arguments of their own … have caught a decent tailwind going into the mid-term elections. Successful Democrat gerrymandering is going to limit how many House seats they can take, but there’s a good chance […]

Once More Unto the Breach: I’m Running for Reelection

 

Since 2017, it’s been my privilege to serve McHenry County as state representative in the Illinois House. I’m announcing today that I am running for reelection in the newly drawn 63rd District.

While the COVID-19 pandemic has forced everyone in Illinois to contend with a multitude of issues over the past several years, the current administration and unelected bureaucrats have effectively excluded the people of this state from making their voices heard. A never-ending series of disaster declarations and executive orders have handed Illinois over to one-man rule.
