This year, as in 2008, State Rep. Jack Franks was a big Hillary Clinton supporter.
Had he supported fellow legislator Barack Obama, he probably could have been a Federal Judge by now (or at least a Magistrate Judge).
When one looks at the Democratic Party Presidential tally for President in McHenry County, Franks did not deliver for his candidate.
Bernie Sanders won 20,093 to 12,875 for Hillary Clinton.
One of the leaders for the Sanders effort, Luis Aguilar, was recognized at the Wednesday night meeting of the McHenry County Democratic Central Committee.
He was reported to have run first in the 14th congressional district.
Democrats award their delegates proportionately by congressional district, so he assured of going to the Democratic National Convention.
Add up how many votes Jack Franks received and any other Delegates who look close and you can see if he will make the trip to Philadelphia, if not, who will.
Franks did lead among Delegate candidates, however.
Strangely, the results published by the McHenry County Clerk fail to say to which Presidential candidate each Delegate candidate is pledged.
That information is on the ballot, however, which you can see below:
In Kane County, Franks did not do so well.
The results for DuPage County follow:
Maybe someone will put this tallies on a spreadsheet and send it to me. I’m too tired to add the figures up.
