Will the Real Richard Irvin Please Stand Up?

Written by Fran Eaton

Aurora Mayor Richard Irvin’s campaign backers’ mantra is “Irvin’s the only one that can beat Pritzker in the General.”

Interesting Facts About the REAL Richard Irvin

Did You Receive Irvin’s Attack Mailer on Bailey?

Written by Fran Eaton 

Every political campaign’s dream is to get potential voters to glance at piece of mail they find in their mailboxes, then their hearts pound quicker if those voters stop and read the mailing cover. Then they hope the voter will open the piece and read what they want those voters to know – either good stuff about their candidate or bad stuff about their opponent.
