Dee Beaubien’s Latino Pitch – Was It the Same as Was Made Successfully by Democrats Elsewhere?

Below you will see two post cards sent by Illinois Immigrant Action PAC on behalf of Dee Beaubien (Ind.-Madigan).

They are aimed at Lations, the group which turned out to be the secret weapon for Democrats in district after district.

The address side of one of the post cards mailed on Dee Beaubien’s behalf.   It’s all about family.

The back of the first Latino piece asks who recipients are hanging around with. Father, mother and two children.

Here’s the second piece:

The address side of the second Latino piece. The appeal is typical of immigrant families’ goals: It’s all about the kids.

The back of the second Latino piece has two generations.


Such appeals may have worked for Democratic Party candidates elsewhere, but they did not work for Dee Beaubien in her race against Republican David McSweeney.

  1. Chicago, Chicago, that toddlin’ town…..

    How about pitching to me? I’m, more or less, a mutt.

    But no one could fit the combination on a postcard – it would take too much space.

    Here’s a thought – worry less about what each individual wants and vote to keep America existing.

    If it becomes something other than America, I hate to see what’s left.
