The David McSweeney campaign forwarded this endorsement from the Daily Herald:
McSweeney over Beaubien in 52nd House District
“McSweeney, a Barrington Hills investment banker and former Palatine Township trustee, offers experience in the business world and a strong plan to solve the state’s fiscal problems that focuses on small business.

And the endorsement does not even mention Dee Beaubien’s name.

Added after Dave’s comment concerning the whole endorsement, which McSweeney did not forward:
Take a look at the whole endorsement here.
It does mention Beaubien’s name. It points out that she decided to run as an Independent after the GOP’s favorite, Kent Gaffney, did not win the primary. It does not point out that Gaffney was also her personal choice.
“Since then, Beaubien has been criticized for accepting money from House Speaker Michael Madigan and thereby beholding herself to him and Democrats,” the editorial says.
“But the larger issue for us is her unwillingness to reveal which caucus she would align herself with in Springfield. Voters cannot know what they would get when she keeps her cards so close the vest.”
The editorial also comments negatively about McSweeney’s ballot challenges to all of this year’s opponents.
