GOP candidate for Illinois 71st District Jim Wozniak has announced that all five Rock Island County Board members have endorsed him.
Is this really wise? I understand that Jeff McKinley lives in Henry County, but should elected officials really be picking winners and losers in contested primary races? I’m thinking the GOP establishment picked Dewhurst over Cruz, Crist over Rubio, etc. and what happened? Is this really necessary? Is it really helpful?
Everyone knows I don’t have a dog in this hunt, but I have been a fan of Jeff McKinley for some time—mostly because I thought he was more interesting.
I don’t have anything against Wozniak, but I think it is bad form for elected officials to bigfoot it in the primary. My view has always been let the people decide.
