When I had my long and civil conversation with Democratic State Rep. candidate Peter Janko at the McHenry County Fair, he was sitting in the Bernie Sanders tent.
Janak made Chicagoland news by being the only Democratic Party State Central Committeeperson elected who refused to vote for Mike Madigan’s re-election as Chairman.
Now, old line Democratic leaders are in panic that Sanders will win their party’s Presidential nomination.
So, with Janko running against Brian Sager, who besides being Woodstock Mayor, was
- a Republican Precinct Committeeman until he did the honorable thing and resigned after endorsing Democrat Jack Franks for County Board Chairman in 2016 and
- an Alternate GOP National Convention Delegate for Mitt Romney ,
my question is whether local Democrats will hand Janko a victory, as they did Bernie Sanders four years ago in McHenry County.
