We have gotten to this point [ leading Lisa Madigan downstate and statistically tied in the collar counties. Overall, only down 16 points, with four and a half months left in the race. ] because of the undeniable truth of our message: Illinois desperately needs an Attorney General who is not beholden to the political insiders.
We need an Attorney General who will defend our constitutional rights and freedoms; protect our medical and financial privacy under the Obamacare trainwreck; and prioritize anti-corruption efforts. In short, we need a prosecutor, not a career politician.
Achievement so far, coming from nowhere:
we: 1) started this process with no name identification whatsoever, 2) have spent negligible amounts of money, and 3) have only now started getting our message out; the conclusion is clear. This is a winnable race.
