Waiting for Jack Franks — 12 Comments

  1. Huh?

    “The only woman so far”

    Did you mean relative to Democrats?

  2. Franks has delusions of grandeur; don’t count him out.

    But he’ll never actually run in an election, he’ll wait for Jesse White to drop out after the primary and grease the skids for his appointment.

  3. **Elaine Nekritz is running…**

    No, Nekritz has already announced that she is NOT running.

  4. If Jack gets Dart’s backing he is in and will get the Trial Lawyers, Bar Associations, and Cook County Police groups.

    It will be fun to watch as several Cook County Demmies split the vote and Jack wins the nomination with 30% of the vote.

  5. Franks isn’t running.

    I’ve already told you.

    And Charles – why, exactly, would the Trial Lawyers support Franks over Raoul?

  6. Franks is one of them.

    Kwame is a self serving political hack whom noone can trust.

  7. Charles — you don’t talk to many trial lawyers, do you.

    I can tell you that the trial lawyers are fans of Raoul.
