The Chicago Sun-Times reports that Illinois Democratic Party Chairman (and House Speaker) Mike Madigan is leery of Donald Trump’s candidacy for President.
“Now that the Republicans have nominated Trump, or appear ready to, don’t rest on your laurels,” Madigan told the group in downtown Springfield.
“This will be a very contested election, from president on down, and particularly the Illinois election.”
That came from yesterday, before polls showed Trump within the margin of error in three states–Ohio, Pennsylvania and Florida–which South Florida Democratic Party congressional candidate AnnetteTaddeo emails, “Democrats have never won the White House without winning one of the[se] big three swing states.”
You will note that Ohio and Pennsylvania are coal mining states.
So is Illinois.
