The following is a letter sent to McHenry County Republican Precinct Committeepersons from fromer GOP Precinct Committeeman Grant Noble:
Dear Republican Committeeman,
The terrible trio of Biden, Pritzker and Lightfoot has given the Republican Party an opportunity to win from top to bottom this year.
But even if we get back Governor, the odds are very much against taking back a 41 to 18 Democrat Illinois Senate.
The best way to end Illinois’ one party dictatorship is a four seat Republican Supreme Court majority for the first time after the 1970 Constitution.
Illinoisreview.com had a great article on why the 2nd District Supreme Court race maybe the most important primary this year: https://www.illinoisreview.com/illinoisreview/2022/05/might-illinois-primary-contests-to-fill-two-illinois-supreme-court-vacancies-rate-higher-than-the-governorship.html
We’ve already had more fireworks for a “minor” race than any other in my 40 years in Illinois politics.
“Bar association threatens judge with ‘Not Recommended’ rating over ‘political’ questionnaire.”
Here’s just one of many Illinois Bar questions:
- “What efforts, if any, have you made in your community to include people of a different race, color, religion, sex, national origin, ancestry, age, marital status, physical or mental disability, military status, or sexual orientation than you as a lawyer and/or judge in the legal profession?”
By not submitting to bullying, Judge Noverini and Sheriff Curran are “not recommended” by the Illinois Bar despite decades of elected public service.
Next was the attempt to keep Judge Hutchinson and Sheriff Curran off the ballot in the 2nd district.
“The Election Board threw them off for that?” was all I could think when I read the legal opinion reversing this outrage.
Just like Obama knocking off a half dozen opponents in his first run for State Senator. Hutchinson and Curran supporters are rightly angry and will be hard to bring back in the fall.
Finally, https://therealnoverini.com/ loaded with unsubstantiated quotes and pure sleaze.
If Noverini actually defunded police instead of cutting waste and corruption after his 1999 Carpentersville Trustee election, how did he ever get elected as a REPUBLICAN to Kane County Board in 2002 and 2006 and Dundee REPUBLICAN Township Chairman in 2004 and 2006?
“In 2021, Citizens For Noverini gave $5,000 to Progressive Action 2016 whose purpose is to “support progressive candidates in Illinois.”
This was for computer software as can be seen on the government report I’d be happy to email you.
As Illinois Review points out, Judge Noverini’s personal, business, political and governmental background and statements show his 2008 Democrat run was motivated by his conservatism, especially on pro-life.
Ronald Reagan said “I didn’t leave the Democrat party, my party left me.”
Republicans were right to welcome Sheriff Curran who left the Democrats due to his pro-life beliefs.
I’m not so disturbed by Richard Irvin voting Democrat in 6 out of the last 7 primaries as his record in office and issues like gun control, pro-life, criminal justice, etc.
We’ll need to convert many former Democrats to win statewide.
Ogilvie’s 1970 Constitution gave us a three seat Supreme Court Democrat base and the income tax.
Thompson raised taxes, Edgar did little with a legislative majority except a record tax hike followed by Ryan doing the same.
“Pinata” Rauner never proposed a true balanced budget or major pension reform.
Instead he betrayed a promise to stay away from social issues by signing Sanctuary State and tax funded abortion on demand.
No wonder the word “Republican” is so toxic to so many in this state.
Judge Noverini has bipartisan appeal and a record of standing up to a corrupt legal and political system.
But the most important thing is ending a one party dictatorship.
Now we must put the party together by ending dirty tactics and concentrating on who is best to win in the fall and serve justice after they win.

“Judge Orders 3 Illinois Supreme Court Candidates Returned To Ballot.”
“In a social media post responding to last month’s state elections board decision, Curran criticized John Fogerty, an attorney representing the objectors to his petitions.
“Mr. Fogarty is also ‘allegedly’ the attorney for the Illinois Republican Party???
“So, half the Candidates for Illinois Supreme Court had the wrong number of signatures???
“I intend to appeal,” Curran said.
“I know that Judge John Noverini was not behind my challenges,” he continued.
“My guess is that Dan Shanes, the other candidate in the race, does not want me talking about how his Masonic friends are clearing out the competition on his behalf, or how there is no way he is pro life or pro 2nd Amendment.”
“These 7 Candidates Want A Rare Open Seat On The Illinois Supreme Court”
“Mark Curran, the former Lake County sheriff and 2020 Republican nominee for U.S. Senate, is the only Republican candidate without experience as a judge.
“His campaign has emphasized anti-abortion and anti-Masonic themes, and he said he would be guided by a natural law philosophy…“
Noverini said this year’s Supreme Court race was the most important on the ballot — more important than the race for governor or U.S. Senate — because it could determine the balance of the state supreme court for the next decade.
“The 2nd District’s been gerrymandered,” Noverini said.
“Right now, this district is probably +8-10 points Democrat, and that’s not by accident.
“The Democrats want to control the Supreme Court, as they’ve controlled the Supreme Court since 1964.”
