The Trifecta Will Soon Come Into Play! (1) Cook County Board (In IL is a VERY powerful position): Would you want someone this ugly running anything. Hell no. I bet a ton of Cook County residents are saying that same thing. Prediction is the Stroeger tax hikes knocked any chance of a Democrat keeping the seat. Sure as hell didn't help Stroeger. (2) Senate Seat: Obama's senate seat is a foresure GOP gain. A very popular Republican, in Kirk, is running against a corruption plagued Giannoulias. Gina was a business PARTNER with Rezko, he was a good friend of Blago and tied to other shady business dealings (including bank fraud)! (3) Governor The Governor leans heavily in the GOP favor: (1) Blago has made people mad at democrats (2) Blago's trial is set to start soon and will play out during the campaign trail. (3) Gov Quinn, who replaced Blago, is WORSE than Blago ==> Quinn has publically stated that he wants to double the income tax, that he believes property and corporate taxes should be increased. NO ONE (D, R and I alike) backs these moves, esp the income tax increase, he is going to get railroaded on the campaign trial because of it. (4) Kirk Dillard the GOP candidate is a STRONG candidate. Just go to his wiki page and see all the endorses. Kirk W. Dillard - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Is America ready to see IL make a STRONG RIGHT TURN? I know as a hell I am!
