Details about how much Congressman Peter Roskam lost his campaign for U.S. House Whip have not dribbled out yet.
But it was obvious since the fight broke out that Peoria’s Aaron Schock was campaigning actively for the eventual winner, Steve Scalise of Louisiana.
Now, media sources are suggesting he might replace Roskam as the Chief Deputy Whip, an appointive position.
Some had touted Schock for Governor this time around.
So how might stabbing a prominent suburban Republican in the back affect a future statewide run?
As former House Speaker Tip O’Neill once said, “All politics are local.”
No one in Louisiana votes in Illinois.
