Garrett Hill, who was working on State Rep. Barbara Wheeler’s campaign for State Central Committeeman in the 14th District reports the following as final results:
- Stan Bond – 20,324.
- Barbara Wheeler – 16,723
- Bob Cook – 7.706
In McHenry County, the totals were
- Wheeler – 8,348
- Cook 5,806
- Bond – 108
The committeemen in D-14 obviously have more political common sense than Randy Hultgren!!!
Agreed, “Connecting dots”.
Congressman Randy Hultgren putting political capital into the SCC race, and then losing, shows how little his name carries weight, and makes him look weak and vulnerable.
Combined with his senior district representative Nick Provenzano’s loss last month in the county clerk’s race, this has not been a good primary season for Hultgren.
It’ll be interesting to see if Hultgren will draw a primary challenge in 2016, with former Congressman Joe Walsh and former congressional candidate Ethan Hastert living in the district.
Hastert, after his loss to Hultgren in 2010, was elected to the Elburn village board as a trustee, so he’s definitely building an elected public voting record in his own name, given the lack of one factored in his 2010 loss to Hultgren.
As for Stan Bond’s victory, he had one of the best-of-them in political consultants working for him — Jon Zahm.
While Hultgren’s last-minute endorsement proved ineffective, Zahm helped Bond consolidate the Kane County votes, given Bond barely registered votes in McHenry County yet still prevailed.
Bye bye Barb.
You’ve made several stupid choices since elected.
One that we won’t forget are your primary endorsements of Cross and Zinke.
Now that the party bosses and gate keeper have lost better start listening to the people.
The political fact of today is this: FEW politicians and NO political party has the power to move numbers anymore.
If anything, “endorsements” are associated with a negative.
Thanks, OCS, for the kind words.
Stan Bond is a class act and a full spectrum conservative.
Congressman Hultgren should have checked with me first before sticking his nose into that race.
I’ve always advised him well in the past, including the primary over Hastert.
McHenry County committeemen erred badly selecting Colgan, an operative for liberals Kirk and Biggert, over Stern.
His votes over the next 4 years will be predictable.
All establishment, all the time.
