Here’s what the Daily Herald article says about McHenry County Board Chairman Jack Franks:
With 184 delegates up for grabs, Illinois is “a key battleground,” Franks said. And by the March 17 primary, the field of 20 or so contenders should be downsized enough that “I think they’ll be scrapping for every vote.”
How do you say “no” politely to an eager politician who wants your support? “I tell them I appreciate them running, I know how hard it is, and I say, ‘Thank you,'” said Franks, who lives in Marengo.
Hillary Clinton received 13,221 vote to Bernie Sanders 20,702.
Perhaps the Daily Herald should be interviewing a McHenry County Democrat who can deliver votes for his or her Presidential candidate.
Perhaps one of the men manning the Bernie Sanders then at the McHenry County Fair.
Someone like 14th Democratic Party State Central Committeeman Peter Janko, a resident of Marengo, who is running for the Party nomination for State Representative in Jack Franks’ district.
