The others were all Republicans.
Bachmann’s was the last speech and a lot of people had left, but my impression was that it was well received.
Bachmann repeated the personal story that was first published here on McHenry County Blog.
For those of you who have not followed the details of Bachmann’s campaign, here are articles (most of which contain content from his keyboard):

October 31, 2007 Dave Backmann Files to Oppose Coroner Marlene Lantzz
February 08, 2008 Something Marlene Lantz Does Not Understand

28-year GOP incumbent coroner Marlene Lantz did not attend the pro-life event.
That’s what the Crystal Lake Herald, Woodstock Sentinel, McHenry Plain Dealer, Marengo Republican, Harvard Herald, River Valley Clarion, Richardson’s Publications, etc., did in the past.
My goal is to allow candidates to speak directly to voters…the way they used to be able to in newspapers.

In the photograph on top, Dave Bachmann can be seen conversing with McHenry County State’s Attorney Lou Bianchi, McHenry County pro-life godmother Irene Napier and Lake County’s 59th district GOP candidate for state representative, Dan Sugrue.
The head shot is of Dave Bachmann speaking.
The next group shot is similar to the one on top, except from a different angle. From front left to right around the circle are Bonnie Quirke, Dan Sugrue, Lou Bianchi, Dave Bachmann, Fred Wickham, Lynn Wickham and, with her back to the camera, Irene Napier.
As the Republican speakers gave their pitches, Bachmann sat listening, as can be seen in the next photo.
Dr. Steve Sauerberg, the GOP candidate for U.S. Senate against Dick Durbin spoke, as did Joe Birkett, the man in the next photograph. He is thinking about running for statewide office for a third time.
State Rep. McHenry County Republican County Chairman Mike Tryon spoke, as did McHenry County State’s Attorney Lou Bianchi and 8th congressional district candidate Steve Greenberg. You can see Greenberg pointing proudly to his family, who appear at the bottom of this explanation of the pictures.
Next is Dan Duffy, who is running for an open state senate seat being vacated by State Senator Bill Peterson.
Finally, Dan Sugrue can be seen with his daughter Vivian at his side. I missed getting a photo of a great leg hug.
