the fund-raiser will kick his campaign for Sheriff into a higher gear as the March 2014 Republican primary election approaches,” Prim said.

“I am very grateful to Speaker and Mrs. Gingrich for agreeing to assist me in this way,” Prim said.

“Newt will give a short talk on his views of the current political situation nationally and I can’t be the only one who looks forward to hearing his perspectives.

“I’ve always admired the Speaker’s principled stands on the issues and more than one of them could be adapted to our own county.

“For example, he thoroughly understands that tax revenues don’t just magically appear somehow, they come out of the pockets of taxpayers.”

“That’s a view I share without question.”

"The Right Man, The Right Time" seems to be the slogan for the Bill Prim for Sheriff campaign.

  1. wonder how much the hairdresser budget is in their appearance fee.

    you know he won’t travel on commercial aircraft.

    this sort of seals my not voting for the guy

  2. The Newt coattails have long since sailed.

    His $0.02 are meaningless to Americans.

  3. You are crazy as a hoot owl if you don’t think this is going to raise a TON of money for Prim.

    It is a fundraiser…..

    Name a single event in the history of McHenry County that could top this?

  4. Are there special interests whose “special interests” will be served if Prim is elected?

    Not dissing but only wondering who his backers are and what they want.

  5. Whaa? Newt involved in our sheriff race? I have died and went to heaven! Let the ridiculousness begin!
