Why is that news?
Don’t Republicans support other Republicans on the ballot?
There was no Republican primary election in McHenry Township and all of those running for office seem to be on the same page.
At least that’s what one might conclude from the four by eight foot sign on Route 31 just north of Route 120.
No GOP primary winner is being challenged in Algonquin Township, so no one would expect much of an effort there.
In Nunda Township, only the Supervisor is being challenged and by an Independent, not a Democrat as in McHenry Township.
The Nunda Township was just finalized this week, so maybe there will be a joint sign promoting Republicans in the near future.
In Grafton Township, there is no doubt a serious effort is being made by a group of Independents to take out all of the Republican candidates but the person on the ballot for Clerk, a write-in candidate who is running unopposed.
There were three sharp primaries in Grafton Township:
- a three-way race for Supervisor, won by Pam Fender
- a two-way race for Assessor, won by Al Zielinski
- a two-way race for Road Commissioner, won by Tom Poznanski
Poznanski is the Chairman of the Grafton Township Republican Central Committee.
So the question of the day is whether the Nunda and Grafton Township Central Committee will be putting forth any organized effort on behalf of their Republican Party candidates?
