Post Christmas tweets show Lauf thanking her supporters and ready to deal with the objection to her petition and those who supported it by just going out and winning.
Friday afternoon, Catalina Lauf took to Twitter concerning her campaign and the immediate challenge of dealing with the objection filed to her petitions by co-objectors Greg Nichols of Plainfield and Justin R. Nudo of Pingree Grove.
Lauf’s three part tweet is transcribed below:
“My deep swamp IL rivals continue to completely embarrass themselves. Out of fear, they arbitrarily challenged valid signatures of my supporters. They’re grasping at straws and we’re fighting back! This is corrupt IL politics at its finest and more of we DON’T WANT / NEED!
“It is so beyond pathetic what type of unethical games politicians will play for power. But it will be stopped, and on March 17th we’ll prove the power goes back to the people and these sad, weak establishment, swamp games are long over.
“We have well over the needed amount of signatures. Huge support in 14th congressional district & across the country continues to grow. It’s clear the people want new perspectives in the Party and a fighter who will stand with President Trump here in the 14th congressional district.
“Thank you ALL for the support every day!”Catalina Lauf in Twitter 12/27/19
COMMENTARY: Lauf nails the reason for the petition objection, “out of fear”.
That is unrighteous fear against an American who wants to present her claim to represent the 14th district in Washington.
While it is Nichols’ and Nudo’s names on the objection, they had help and though anyone has the right to object to a candidates’ petitions, like impeachment, it should be for a just reason, not a transparent ploy motivated by hatred bred by fear.
The truth will come out as far as whom the people were who helped these two men get the petition objection filed.
But to Lauf’s credit, she is focused on the election and this objection ordeal has made her even more stronger, determined and formidable not only for the primary, but the general, too.
And the same can be said about her supporters, and when the objection is dismissed, there will be a shout for joy and freedom of expression, the Republican primary field could very well be overwhelmed.
That is not what the objectors and their backers had in mind when they plotted and schemed to do this in the depths of the Illinois swamp.
But it’s a likely result.
