This is a new experience between a candidate and the McHenry County Republican Party.
Usually, it is the Party asked for money from candidates.
I don’t ever remember the Party giving money to a candidate.
But, showing how important the local GOP thinks Mike Buehler’s challenge to incumbent McHenry County Board Chairman Jack Franks is a $5,000 contribution made on October 16th.
The same day, Buehler’s PAC reported $3,000 more:
- $1,000 – Kyle Berger, Wauconda
- $1,000 – Julie Chamberlin, Wauconda
- $1,000 – Berger Excavating, Wauconda
Berger and Chamberlin list themselves as owners of Berger Excavating.
At Buehler’s web site, one may make contributions or request a yard sign.

This is going to stimulate me to write an article on Buehler’s campaign finances for the third quarter of the year.
And, one thing is for certain, if Buehler loses, no one will levy the kind of criticism that faced Republican Presidential candidates John McCain and Mitt Romney–that they refused to criticize Barack Obama.
