To the People of the Great State of Illinois:
It is with great pleasure that I wholeheartedly endorse Adam Andrzejewski for the office of Governor of the State of Illinois. In writing these words I feel particularly touched because, sadly, it is so seldom in the United States that a Polish son becomes involved in politics. But I do not endorse Adam only because of his Polish roots.
I applaud Mr. Andrzejewski’s commendable effort to bring real reform to politics. His insistence on transparency in public life are badly needed not only …

The Adam Andrzejewski campaign for Illinois Governor received several small shots in the arm over the last week, bringing in over $130,000 in donations with 95% of the donations coming in under $500, per Andrzejewski campaign sources.

Helped by increased internet traffic and the Brown election in Massachusetts, the Andrzejewski campaign also reports an increase in yard sign distribution and claims of broad downstate support.
Andrzejewski, a first time candidate for political office,  has been running an outsider campaign for the Illinois Republican gubernatorial nomination with appeals to the Tea Party movement and grassroots conservative …

The primary election campaign is in full swing thanks to special legislation designed to benefit the presidential candidacy of Barack Obama during the 2008 campaign by advancing the date of the Illinois primary in order to benefit the carpetbagger with a “home” state win. The legislators conveniently rescheduled future gubernatorial primaries at the same time, so voters can exercise their franchise by slogging through the snow and ice next February.

Chicago ward committeemen and precinct captains have long preferred the low voter turn outs that winter time balloting produced …

Political candidates are not unlike automotive tires: There are retreads, non-treads, and worn treads. The key criterion is extended use, and whether the candidate still has traction.
Here are unwritten political rules regarding repeat candidacies:
First, a candidate who narrowly loses, was expected to lose, but performed better than expected, gets a second chance.
He or she is a viable retread.

Second, a candidate who loses, but was expected to win, is a non-tread. The rubber is off the tire. There is no second chance. He or she is no longer credible.
Third, a candidate …

President Obama’s former colleagues in the Illinois state Senate used him as a punching bag Thursday in the first debate among all seven Republicans running for governor.
“Just as I worked to defeat Obamamcare when he was a state senator in Illinois, we will defeat it, hopefully, at the federal level,” said state Sen. Bill Brady (R-Bloomington).
“But if we fail to do that, I will impose the [states’ rights] 10th Amendment to the United States Constitution, and tell the federal government they have no right to take our tax dollars and …

Illinois’ government is undeniably corrupt. “Pay-to-play” flourishes. Five of the state’s last eight governors have been indicted, and three convicted and imprisoned. Rod Blagojevich will soon make it four. Every lever of power in Illinois is controlled by a Chicago Democrat.
State Senator Bill Brady (R-44), of Bloomington, the frontrunner for the 2010 Republican nomination for governor, has a simple solution to all of Illinois’ ills: Just say “no” to Chicago…and “no” to lawyers…and “no” to Democrats.
In short, argues Brady, don’t continue to let Chicagoans run Illinois. Elect a Downstater as …

Adam Andrzejewski (pronounced An-jee-ef-ski) is running for governor in the Republican primary on a platform of reform, offering specific spending cuts and holding the line on taxes.
Sound radical?
Only in Illinois, where government is big business and the parties’ trading jobs for support makes them almost indistinguishable.
“The Republican patronage model is broken, we can’t win statewide elections,” said Andrzejewski, a young, self-made businessman raised in Herscher, in Kankakee County, and now living in Hinsdale.
“My candidacy is a paradigm shift for this party. My party needs to move away from Republican patronage …

Steele Withdraws Sole Support for Kirk.

Republican National Chairman Michael Steele has withdrawn his sole endorsement for Mark Kirk for the U. S. Senate, recognizing that the candidacy of Patrick Hughes has drawn major support from Illinois Republicans: thus Steele’s RNC is neutral…a distinct victory for Hughes.
Andrzejewski & Mullins.

I call my WLS radio show “Political Shootout” for a reason. It’s not a meandering, everybody-agree-with-everyone-else variant of the WTTW’s deadly boring “Chicago Week in Review” but is immediate and spontaneous with two participants who feel strongly about issues and tactics. Last night …
