A poll last night in Jack Franks’ 63rd State Representative District tells me that I am not the only one who has figured out that the Democrat is still running for his tenth term in the Illinois House (after promising only to run three times).
A Friend of McHenry County Blog emailed the following:
Just got a phone survey asking about Rauner/Madigan, Presidential race, Senate race and more than a few Franks/Reick questions.
That could be from
- a Republican source or
- an ally of Jack Franks.
In any event, one does not ask questions about Steve Reick, the GOP candidate for State Rep. in Jack Franks’ district unless a contest might be in the offing.
Franks hasn’t withdrawn his candidacy for his tenth re-election campaign.
You can verify that by clicking on this withdrawal page at the Illinois State Board of Elections. Check whether Franks has filed the form yet, but clicking here.
Franks did tell Pete Gonigam, the only reporter at the May 15th Democratic Party’s slating caucus, the following:
“Franks qualified that saying he’d give up the Rep. race if the Committee can pick another candidate who’s both ‘electable’ and holds a political outlook consistent with his own.”
