Isn’t Anybody Going to Challenge Jan Schakowsky in (IL-9) ?
Thought I would check, since it seems another challenger (Atanus) ran afoul of the election commission and, subsequently, a Cook County district circuit judge, due to a problem with the formatting of her nominating papers.
But (whew!) there is a young man who did make it past the primary, and he is Joel Pollak. He seems to be the six-term Schakowsky’s only challenger.
What caught my interest was hearing Eric Cantor on WLSam today, asking us to help Joel unseat Schakowsky this November.
Even better, I found that Sean Hannity interviewed Joel just this week on the tube.
But my second intro to Joel was a song he wrote and then performed this week at Daley Plaza, Chicago: The Ballad of the Tea Party. Take a listen.
I’m glad that someone has the chutzpah to take on a top insider in a so-called safe D seat. I want to see Joel succeed, and it’s not even my district. I’ll do what I can because these arrogant collectivists need to spend money and be bloodied electorally.
Think about this–it is a humanitarian crisis. Save Paul Ryan from having to listen to Shakowsky when the Debt Commission meets.
PS oops! I missed the interview posted by Moe in February from CPAC.
