Jim Oberweis Interviewed by Fran Eaton at Illinois Conservative Activists Conference
Congressional candidate Jim Oberweis was interviewed by Illinois Review‘s Editor Fran Eaton at this past Saturday’s conference sponsored by the Illinois Conservative Union.
The article, with the embedded video, can be accessed here, and the video is about 2 1/2 minutes.
OBSERVATION: Oberweis continues to cling to the false assumption of “…if I can beat Durbin [in the 14th district in the 2014 election], I can beat Underwood.”
As noted in a previous article, that 2014 U.S. Senate election Oberweis refers to when he lost to Durbin statewide was a completely different time and a very different electorate during a Republican year, and most notably, was not a presidential election.
Discerning voters know IL-14 demographics have changed significantly since 2014. Had he done what he described in 2018, then Oberweis’ claim would have some credibility.
