The two candidates McHenry County Board Chainrman Jack Franks publicly backed in the Democratic Party Primary Election emerged victorious in Tuesday’s election.
His candidate for Governor, fellow one percenters JB Pritzker, and fellow one percenter Sean Casten to run against Congressman Peter Roskam.
Unlike Franks’ endorsement of Hillary Clinton in 2008 and 2016, Pritzker carried McHenry County 38% to 34% for Daniel Miss this year.
That was not the case with Franks’ congressional endorsement, however.
Instead of Franks’ endorsement carrying for Casten, Kelly Mazeeski won McHenry County 36% to 27&.
And, if you consider the endorsements of Franks’ allies embodied in the anonymous entity calling itself “Illinois Integrity Fund,” Franks also won in County Board District 6 when Republican allies Michele Aavang and Larry Smith beat challengers Orville Brettman and Ersel Schuster
He lost, however, when County Board critics Chuck Wheeler of McHsnry and Michael Rein of Woodstock won nomination, although Rein by old eleven votes, which could be subject to a recount.
