If the deadline for withdrawing from fall ballot hadn’t passed, one may think replacing Jim Oberweis with Catalina Lauf being pursued
With the apparent snub by the Illinois Republican Party on 14th district nominee Jim Oberweis by including Catalina Lauf on a live stream broadcast on Tuesday afternoon at 4PM CDT, more Lauf exposure took place during a 5-minute infomercial between speakers late Monday night at the Republican National Convention.
The infomercial featured both Catalina Lauf and her older sister Madeline Lauf of San Francisco talking about being successful in business within a pre-pandemic Trump ecomomy, and how the PPP helped Madeline’s business earlier this year.
Both sisters were born and raised in Woodstock.
In addition to the infomercial, a clip from this video was included at the 1-minute mark of the “Promises and Hope” video shown earlier on Monday.
COMMENTARY: And while the subtitle was more tongue in cheek, with all the attention Catalina Lauf has been getting by both the national and state Republican party during Republican National Convention week, one is wondering when/if Jim Oberweis, the man who beat Catalina Lauf in the IL-14 primary, was going to start getting some attention this week.
McHenry County Blog did not hear from the Oberweis campaign after inquiring about the state party not including Oberweis on a live stream during the Republican National Convention.
