Cedra Crenshaw back on ballot!
Cedra, as you will recall, is a conservative Republican running for the Illinois state Senate who had been thrown off the ballot for being a black conservative Republican a ballot technicality. That has been… resolved, and not in the Democrats’ favor:
State Sen. A.J. Wilhelmi has a fight on his hands, and his Democratic bosses have only made it worse.
Party leaders brought out the big guns to try to blow Republican challenger Cedra Crenshaw off the November ballot for the 43rd District seat. But a Will County judge ruled Wednesday that Crenshaw’s ballot petitions are valid, rejecting the argument contrived by the Democrats who wanted Wilhelmi to coast to victory unopposed.
As you remember, the original decision created a good deal of outrage among local Republican activists, not to mention some public embarrassments of local, state, and federal Democratic legislators:
…so this spanking by the judge of the Illinois Democratic party is both welcome, and overdue. Roll on November, and Cedra Crenshaw for State Senate.
