Jesse White Running for Secretary of State as a Libertarian — 14 Comments

  1. I wonder when Jesse retires are all his friends, neighbors and relatives
    he hired going to retire also?

  2. Jesse White, IQ: 87, yet he’s made many millions in “public service”.

  3. Is this Libertarian Jesse White, white, I wonder.

    That should be a fun election with the dueling Jesse Whites.

  4. Lorna, Democrat Jesse White is not running again, and the Libertarian, to my knowledge, is in fact white unlike current SoS Jesse White who is not white but black.

    There are at least 3 Dems running for SoS to replace White.

    The front runner is probably Alexi Giannoulias.

    Anna Valencia would be the runner up.

    But it’s still early.

    Dan Brady is running on the Republican side and I have not heard of any other GOP candidates.

  5. ** Dan Brady is running on the Republican side and I have not heard of any other GOP candidates.**

    Correcting – John Mulhouse is running as part of the unofficial Ken Griffin slate (along with Demmer for Treasurer, Teresi for Comptroller, and likely Richard Irvin/Avery Bourne for Gov/LG).

    Plenty of articles on Milhiser running here:

  6. No white, asian or Hispanic kids ever allowed on that tumbling team. I wonder why.

  7. Also, just a note, looks like I somehow typed/autocorrected Milhiser to Mulhouse above.

  8. I missed that news. Thanks for the info, Shake. Are you going to write a story about Alexi and Anna for the blog?

  9. Nah, I don’t write stories for this blog.

    But Alexi is the clear favorite (he’s dominating the endorsements and fundraising), but I’m less bullish on Alexi than a lot of others.

    I think Anna Valencia still has a path.

  10. ^I see you are correct about that, Lorna.

    That should make things entertaining, however, Kelly has flaked out of elections before so who knows if he’ll get on the ballot.
