From a press release from the Eric Reyes campaign announcing he has withdrawn as a Republican candidate for 17thCD leaving the field clear for Bobby “Pizza Guy With 10 Kids” Schilling:
“The fact is, as bad as the situation in Washington is, the situation here at home is even worse. We live in a state that is taxing itself out of competition for businesses. We have a budget and pension system that was recently ‘reformed’ by kicking the can down the road for the umpteenth time and hoping things will just magically get better. We also still live in the state with the most restrictive gun laws that infringe upon law abiding citizens’ Constitutional rights and that have allowed increasing crime to continue to plague our society. I have no intention of standing by and watching our great state go the way of Detroit…”
Reyes For Illinois 72nd District!
Or something. Whatever.
