I-caucus has a Horse in the Illinois Senate Race & he needs your help !!!

I-caucus has a Horse in the Illinois Race and he needs your help !!!

This past weekend, Illinois I-caucus members endorsed Judge Don Lowery in Illinois and I am excited to see such a stellar candidate emerge from the vetting process.

Here's problem #1: Mark Kirk is the front runner, and the choice of the Republican party establishment...and Kirk is currently a Representative who voted for TARP and was one of only 8 Republicans to vote for Cap and Trade which you may recall passed by only 7 votes.

Here's problem #2: There are several challengers who are all currently splitting votes amongst themselves which is working to Mark Kirk's advantage

Here's problem #3: A lot of media types, even some of the Fox News media types, are touting Patrick Hughes as the "tea party" or "grass roots" candidate...but Hughes is not the true fiscally responsible constitutional candidate in this race!

OK, so now Here's SOLUTION #1: YOU are the solution!

Beginning Right Now today, we need every I-caucus member to do whatever they can to spread the word about Judge Lowery in Illinois.

WE have 11 days and 11 days only!


1 - Email anyone and everyone you know in Illinois about Judge Lowery and our endorsement.


2 - Post on blogs and comment sections anywhere and everywhere you can about Judge Lowery...especially if you see posts that are supporting anyone else.


3 - You have info above on Mark Kirk..."TARP" and "Cap and trade" are sufficient to write him off. Make sure Illinois voters know about it!


4 - Here's some important info for you, because we must let grass roots activists and the media know that Hughes is NOT the right choice and NOT the choice of grassroots tea party members in Illinois:

A) Patrick Hughes would not agree to go through our vetting process, despite repeated attempts by local members to get him to do so and despite a personal email plea I sent to his campaign manager explaining who we are and that we wanted to help keep Kirk out of office.

B) This is huge: The Illinois Conservative Network, a respected grassroots group, just switched their endorsement on January 15th away from Patrick Hughes...and over to our endorsed candidate Judge Lowery:


C) As reported by our friends over at ResistNet, Tea Party members of Kane County (KCAP) which is home to Ililnois' 2nd largest city have endorsed Lowery over Hughes:


D) The Southern Illinois Tea party has vetted and approved Lowery over hughes AND they announced yesterday (Jan. 21st) that "there are groups looking to come into Illinois and capitalize on the tea party movement. They are trying to speak for us and to push a
candidate (Hughes) that we have seen in person and have rejected."


E) Our friends at the Examiner.com are reporting that the Illinois State Rifle Association has endorsed Judge Lowery:


f) and then the Gun owners of America endorsed Judge Lowery: http://www.examiner.com/x-17412-Macon-County-Conservative-Examiner~y2010m1d21-Gun-Owners-of-America-endorses-Hughes
