With the arrest of Governor Rod Blagojevich dealing a body blow to the Illinois Democratic Party, it will receive another right jab on Tuesday when Lake County Sheriff Mark Curran officially announces his switch to the Republican Party.
McHenry County Blog has run two stories on Curran:
- Lake County Sheriff Mark Curran Seeks Illegal Alien Deportation Authority
- Lake County Sheriff Mark Curran Steps to the Fore Again
After the second article, in which he ripped Mayor Richard Daley for not stopping the continuing murder of children, people were speculating that he might be positioning himself to run for statewide office.
Maybe he still is.
On the Republican Party ticket.
Sheriff Curran will announce his switch to the Republican Party at 11 AM on Tuesday December 16th at Republican Headquarters on Peterson Road.

An email from Raymond S. True, Chairman of the Republican Assembly of Lake County reports,
“The RALC has been in consultation with Mark advising him to do this. He is Pro Life, Pro traditional marriage, Pro second amendment, Pro enforcement of illegal aliens. He is perfect fit for the Republican State and National Platforms.
“Come one and come all… Let’s give a super RALC send off to this event of the year in Lake County.”
Why did he switch?
Guess we’ll have to wait until Tuesday.
Curran says its a “matter of conscience”. Details at the Team America blog.
