Chris Hansen is conducting an unscientific poll from his Twitter ID gauging the support among the 4 top tier candidates for the 14th congressional district Republican primary.

Ted Gradel
Catalina Lauf
Jim Oberweis
Sue Rezin

In the event the embedded Twitter poll is not displayed on your screen, here is the link:

The poll concludes November 18.

Included above is a Twitter response to Mr. Hansen’s poll, which sums up what the 14th congressional district election in 2020 is all about.

I responded in Twitter with the following:

“To be clear, Lauren Underwood transformed from a back office, paper pushing, no-interactions-with-patients policy administration RN into a doctor’s office, scrubs wearing, patients-interactions sham by slick advertising.”

In other words, yes, Lauren Underwood was a charlatan since her election was the result of hoodwinking the voters of the 14th district last year, combined with a terrible campaign by the Republican incumbent.

And there are some blog commenters who back Underwood’s reelection having the audacity to call me a “charlatan”.

Just a reminder what the election is about.

So among the four Republicans the National Republican Congressional Committee “On the Radar” “Young Guns” running in the primary who are McHenry County Blog‘s top ranked candidates, who is your choice?

Please vote in the poll on Twitter.

If you are delaying voting due to the yet-to-be-published articles on Ted Gradel’s candidacy, those will be published by Saturday, in time to vote in the poll.

  1. Other than by virtue of your silly analysis and questionable interest in Catalina Fluff, how did this unqualified, inexperienced young lady become a “top tier” candidate?

  2. Mr. Heinrich, my analyses are not silly but respected, as readership metrics will attest and I have no questionable interest in any candidate.

    Now to your question, the answer is simple and verified through metrics.

    Through the 3rd quarter FEC reporting period, Lauf’s campaign had raised over $100K in contributions, and $0 loans to herself.

    Given this fundraising was done in 38 days (August 22 through September 30), that made it more impressive.

    And I had been writing that candidates needed to show at least $100K raised from donors to be taken seriously since mid September.

    Lauf, along with Jim Oberweis, Ted Gradel and Sue Rezin, met the threshold.

    The other 3 candidates at the time had not.

    Those three are Anthony Catella, Danny Malouf and James Marter.

    Jerry Evans had not yet entered the race.

    My top tier candidates list was confirmed at the end of October, when both Lauf and Rezin were named to the NRCC On the Radar Young Guns list.

    Oberweis and Gradel had been named to the list after 2nd quarter fundraising.

  3. You must be kidding, demon-crat Lauren Underwood is a liar?

    She is as qualified to be a legislator as the dunce known as AOC.

  4. “my analyses are not silly but respected”…this clown needs his head examined. In the meantime, stay tuned…354 days…tic, tock, tic, tock, tic, tock, meeeeeeoooooooowwwwwwwwwwww…

  5. I am loyal to my cow milker, but I admit that second amendment picture of Catalina is powerful stuff to God-fearing, gun-clinging republikkklans. Stay tuned, tic, tock, tic, tock, tic, tock, meeeeeeoooooooowwwwwwwwwwwwww…

  6. Who exactly respects your supposed analysis, most who respond to this blog view you as a church bulletin writer with a curious interest in a young female candidate. Why Cal keeps you around is a mystery to many.

  7. No mystery here. Despite being considered by many a complete charlatan and irrelevant loser, I still feel the utmost respect and admiration for my sunshine blogger; an accomplished journalist, political commentator, and free lunch grabber on his own merits. It is no coincidence this sunshine blog is the shining city on the journalism hill and pride of beautiful and forever rural McHenry County. This new clown who looks in the mirror and sees a respected and reputable journalist has been carefully vetted by our sunshine blogger and tapped for the glorious mission of perpetuating the entertainment coming from this sewer blog. Stay tuned…354 days…tic, tock, tic, tock, tic, tock, tic, tock, tic, tock, meeeeeeoooooooooowwwwwwwwwwwwww…

  8. Someone please initiate that proposed county ‘Cat Tax’ on Llavona.

  9. Casey Amos, you said it. Angel is projecting a lot more than usual, with 3 comments in the same article, especially with the “clown” reference.

    I must have struck a nerve with the truth about Lauren Underwood.

    I give thanks and credit to God for guiding me to see the truth as He reveals it to me.

  10. Heinrich-You are obviously an Underwood supporter, what is it about Lauf that scares you so much? This is a Republican primary issue. The election will determine this. Why are you so afraid to let this play out? Again I will ask why is she any more “unqualified” than Underwood was two years ago? You throw that word around like you actually now what it means.

  11. Can’t wait till Underwood has to vote on impeachment.

    She’ll probably vote present like Jack Franks did on issues he didn’t want to take a public stance on.

    Otherwise it will be her own political death penalty.

  12. “I give thanks and credit to God for guiding me to see the truth as He reveals it to me”. God has been properly cited as a reference in this wonderful journalistic journey brought to you by this McHenry County sunshine blog…stay tuned…353 days…tic, tock, tic, tock, tic, tock, meeeeeeeeoooooooooowwwwwwwwwwww…

  13. Angel Llavons. I just figured out that you also go by underwoodnow handle. It must be tough for you to have so many fake accounts. Super troll!

  14. I don’t like Heinrich the Communist one bit, but his ‘Catalina Fluff” quip did make me laugh, or should I write lauf?

  15. Do you people actually bother reading the blatherings of Angel Llama-vonna?

    If so that makes you almost as dumb as he is.

    Just skip his scribblings and quit wasting your time on a certified moron.

  16. Dear compassionate conservative republikkklans, rest assured that I am who I am. Stay tuned…tic, tock, tic, tock, tic, tock meeeeeeeeoooooooooowwwwwwwwwwwwww…
