An Update on the Republican State Central Committee Party Leadership Vote

Written by John Biver and David E. Smith

Illinois Family Action wants to provide an update regarding the upcoming leadership vote tomorrow of the Illinois Republican State Central Committee (SCC).

The Illinois GOP SCC is the state party’s governing board, with one member chosen from each congressional district. Those elections took place last month at county party conventions across the state. Tomorrow, the SCC will meet to elect a party chairman for a four-year term.

The reason this committee and the party chairman is important is that the quality of messaging, candidate recruitment, and support are dependent on the quality of the party leaders.… Continue Reading

News from the Illinois Political Front Lines: Part 2 — Conservative Energy is Growing at the Grassroots Level

Written by John Biver

Rauner & Homosexual Activists Donate To GOP Traitor Tom Cross

From the IllinoisReview.com blog:

Just as the year end campaign fund drive closed for 2013, Illinois GOP gubernatorial primary candidate Bruce Rauner and his wife Diana each maxed out in the GOP treasurer’s primary race by writing $5300 checks to former House Minority Leader State Rep. Tom Cross (Plainfield).

Cross is successfully pulling in campaign contributions from persons and organizations he’s worked with over the years he headed Illinois’ House Republican Caucus. According to Illinois State Board of Election records, Cross’ GOP primary opponent, DuPage County Auditor Bob Grogan, is struggling to gather the funds to set up tough primary competition.
