They may not know it, but the Republican Assembly of Lake County may have as its guest speaker a future Republican candidate for congress.
With Congressman Mark Kirk obviously preparing to run for the United States Senate instead of undergoing another grueling campaign for re-election, national Republicans are looking for a replacement.
Lake County Sheriff Mark C. Curran, Jr., the RALC Ronald Reagan Day Dinner speaker, might be just that person.
Curran, you may remember has recently become a Republican, after being elected as a Democrat.
He came to my attention when he announced he wanted to gain the ability to enforce immigration laws.
The next September he ripped Chicago Mayor Richard Daley.
Unheard of from a Democrat.
Then, last December, Curran announced he was switching to the Republican Party.
