For those of you tired of my beating the drum of Jack Franks having said he was going to withdraw, but not filing the necessary paperwork, that series of articles is now over.
This appeared on the Illinois State Board of Elections web site today:
I have no idea why today’s date is not used.
Certainly Franks did not withdraw last November 23, as the web site says.
Maybe that’s the date he filed for State Representative.
It was the first date for filing petitions.
So, the Democrats are willing to risk losing the House seat to Republican Steve Reick.
Unless the Democrats have found someone who is “electable.”
And Franks will concentrate on winning the race for McHenry County Board Chairman against Mike Walkup.
