Out of the mouth of former Illinois Party Chairman Pat Brady via WLS-TV:
“No, it’s not the end of the party,” said Pat Brady, former Illinois Republican Party chairman and political consultant.
“The party is strong, but we need to get back to the issues people care about and become less of a party focused on the personality of one man.”
Beady did start the demonizing of House Speaker Mike Madigan in 2012 while he was Chairman, but cut a commercial attacking Jeanne Ives last year when she ran against Democrat Sean Casten.
Ives, by the way, was one of Madigan’s harshest critics.
