If ever there were a reason to vote for Jeanne Ives in the Republican Primary, it is yesterday’s endorsement of Ives’ opponent Jay Kinzler by the Chicago Sun-Times.

Pritzker and Daniel Biss.

In paroxysms of faux-outrage, they said a bunch of stupid stuff in a Chicago Sun-Times article titled “Ives ad targets transgender community, immigrants and women who get abortions” about Jeanne Ives‘ new video campaign ad.… Continue Reading
