The Daily Herald is reporting that Bull Valley’s State Rep. Jack Franks spoke on Hillary Clinton’s behalf at a Chicago fund raiser.
Franks is co-chairman of her Illinois campaign.
It’s an interesting strategy that Franks and his father Herb have embarked upon.
Being a high profile supporter of the non-favorite son would certainly gain Franks tremendous White House access should Clinton succeed in her quest.Imagine a President Clinton appearing at a fund raiser for candidate for governor Jack Franks, for instance.
Such access could come in handy should Franks decide to run for statewide office.
According to Dave Berry’s article, Franks said
“he’s not concerned by shifting poll numbers.
“’We’ve always known that it would be a close race,’ Franks said, ‘We understood that from the beginning. But a few months ago, she was 25 points down in Iowa, and now look at her; that’s what the story line ought to be.’”
