… and more!

This reminds me of appinted State Rep. Kent Gaffney’s Primary Election campaign.

He also had lots of endorsements, but David McSweeney beat him.

I concluded, “Popularity of local and state elected officials was not transferred to Gaffney.”

Apparently, it was not to Sanguinetti either.


Evelyn Sanguinetti’s Endorsements — 10 Comments

  1. Do you have a list of endorsements for Kinzler and Ives?

    Or the 14th district crew?

  2. The important thing here is, somewhere there is a freshly unemployed f’wit, that has Sanquinetti Campaign Coordinator on their resume.

  3. Don’t have a list for Ives. Her campaign did announce former Congressman Peter Roskam is backing Ives, and if Roskam’s donor list played a part in Ives’ 3rd quarter fundraising of $340,298.13, that is how an “endorsement” works in congressional politics.

    We’ll know to a degree when her FEC is published in the next 3 days.

    Additionally, State Representative Allen Skillicorn is openly backing Ives’ bid for the 6th, and she is backing Skillicorn’s reelection in his House district.

    Dr. Kinzler, to my knowledge, has not published a list.

    In the 14th, Jim Oberweis published an initial list of 73 names back on June 28, and here is the link: https://jim2020.com/endorsements

    On September 3, Skillicorn endorsed Oberweis’ bid for Congress in the 14th, and Oberweis’ campaign issued press release, but did not add Skillicorn to the endorsements page on their website.

    I did do a cross-reference of how many of the 73 endorsing Oberweis with the FEC disclosure report, I think the 1st quarter, and found only one name on the itemized list of endorsers had given Oberweis a contribution that would need to be itemized on a quarterly report.

    The threshold to itemize I believe is $200 for the entire quarter.

    Ted Gradel, James Marter, Anthony Catella, Danny Malouf, Sue Rezin and Catalina Lauf have not published an endorsement list, to my knowledge.

    In social media, Lauf is up to nearly 24,000 Twitter followers, over 15,000 Instagram followers.

    Hope that helps.

  4. Follow-up, Jim Oberweis endorser who was listed as a campaign donor on the First Quarter FEC campaign disclosure report for Oberweis was former State Representative Robert Pritchard.

    I did not do the research on 2nd quarter reports, and the 3rd quarter data will be out later this week, which will lend itself to research.

  5. Anyone dumb enough to accept and list a mark Kirk endorsement, is a perfect fit for ensuing implosion of Illinois

  6. I am pretty critical of a lot of posts on this blog but this one is spot on.

    Maybe Evelyn shouldn’t have spent so much time calling random PCs for endorsements and spent more time calling donors.

    Critical mistake from her campaign.

    These endorsements dont matter to the everyday voter.

    There are many elections where candidates have all the endorsements in the world and still lose to outsiders with no political connections.

  7. Mark Kirk?

    Please don’t make me vomit.


    A rodent?

  8. Jack Schaffer and Pam ‘The Scam’ Althoff????

    I did vomit!

  9. Chinchillas have the softest fur on earth.

    One cannot tell by touch with one’s eyes closed when one begins touching its fur.
