Tribune endorses two women for the 6th and 14th seats
Saturday morning, the Chicago Tribune endorsed Jeanne Ives in the 6th district and Sue Rezin in the 14th district for the 2020 Republican primary elections.
In the 6th, while emphasizing Ives displayed qualities two years ago in her unsuccessful bid for governor, the Tribune endorsement points out Ives is better prepared to retake the 6th district seat.
“…that hard edge has softened in this congressional campaign, so there’s reason to believe she learned a lesson that makes her a better candidate today. That’s important because Ives would need to appeal to social moderates in the November general election…”Chicago Tribune Editorial Endorsement 2/15/20
In the 14th, the Tribune reminds readers of Jim Oberweis’ previous runs for high profile statewide offices. And after mentioning Catalina Lauf as a candidate with promise, endorsed Sue Rezin in the 7-person field.
“…a consistent advocate for financial stability in Illinois who also specializes in health care and energy issues.”Chicago Tribune Editorial Endorsement 2/15/20
