Time for a follow-up article on this story in Politico about Jack Franks running for McHenry County Board Chairman, which appeared on May 16th:
How it works: Franks said Democrats have until August to put a new name on the ballot.
Franks vowed not to take part in any ploy that would involve his stepping down early before the election so the party could give someone a leg up.
He also ruled out protecting the seat, winning, then stepping down after he’s reelected.
That same day, McHenry County Blog ran Pete Gonigam’s story, which said,
Franks qualified that saying he’d give up the Rep. race if the Committee can pick another candidate who’s both “electable” and holds a political outlook consistent with his own.
