Commenting on the most obvious omission, the McHenry County Republican Party’s refusal to give Tea Party-inspired Tonya Franklin a chance, the editorial reads,
“The GOP failed to field a candidate to oppose Democrat Jack Franks in Illinois’ 63rd House District despite an unsuccesful attempt by tea party Republicans to caucus in Tonya Franklin.”
