I guess I’ve slipped off State Senator Pam Althoff’s press release list, but, fortunately, I discovered on < that one of McHenry County’s legislators is endorsing her colleague Matt Murphy for Lieutenant Governor.
Murphy started off running for governor, then hooked up with former GOP state party chairman Andy McKenna and switched to the second spot.
His first campaign appearance in McHenry County, as far as I know, was on July 9th at Nick’s Pizza in Crystal Lake.
He was a national convention delegate candidate for Fred Thompson in 2008.
He favors a structural change in the General Assembly that I promoted in my 2002 Libertarian Party gubernatorial campaign—Term Limits for Legislative Leaders.
In the debate when Illinois Senate Democrats passed a 67% income tax hike, Murphy was a true star.
Murphy is from Palatine.
