The person most likely to win the new 6th Congressional District seat is incumbent Republican Peter Roskam.
He held a picnic at Veterans Acres, complete with petting zoo, Saturday afternoon.
A friend of McHenry County Blog estimates fifty people stopped by between 2 and 3:30.
He adds, “No occupy folks attended.”
To promote the event, Roskam’s campaign sent out a colorful invitation and Roskam’s wife Elizabeth called to invite residents.
At the end was a non-typical disclosure. Something like, “I’m told I have to say that this was paid for by Citizens for Roskam.”
If it was supposed to catch people’s attention, it succeeded with me.
