Kind of expected but it’s not her fault. Conservatives support her and the GOP doesn’t.

Quigley is a real horses ass too. Good to see the RNC so heavily supporting this fine conservative lady. /s

Too many brain-dead sheep-dipped Democrat voters. GOP could spend a million bucks and she’d still trail.
You need the Democrat guy to be indicted to win there (Rosty’s old seat?)

They haven’t learned their lesson yet. Guess they need to lose over a few more election cycles. Dem Light isn’t a winning brand.

She was no dem light. She’s a conservative. I can see how my post could be misconstrued.

Pulido trailing by more than 3 to 1 in Chicago precincts

Rosanna is no dem light. She’s too far right for republicans. Pro American and all that.

Wasn’t there a Chicago republican encouraging people to write in Abe Lincoln over Pulido?

Chicagolady got ZERO help from the Republican Party. I’ll send my dollars straight to Sarah Palin, but not a dime more to the RNC. Screw them!

That’s an incredibly low turnout. What was NY-20’s ? 150,000 ? And this isn’t even 30k ? We could’ve put some real attention here but Michael Steele was AWOL. Disgusting. News flash to Steele, we have to win Dem seats in order to win back Congress.

yes, even one quality mailing to GOP households over the weekend could have pumped up turnout ... a 5-day blitz of door knocking could have caught the dems napping.

Let us remember that there is no Obama backlash in ILLINOIS.

with 80% of the precincts reporting,
Pulido has 24%

http://abclocal.go.com/wls/feature?section=news/politics&id=6097112

this is the 4/7 special election, not the primary, even though the headline says “primary”.

Illinois is the kingdom of the Messiah. In downtown Chicago, there are posters of the Messiah everywhere. Disagreeing with the Messiah is considered unpatriotic. Chicagolady’s posting history on FR became a campaign issue. The Chicago media constantly called FR a racist site.

There is no Republican leadership here on the Northwest side of Chicago.

“One ward committeeman is encouraging Republican voters to write in “Abraham Lincoln” as a protest against her.”

http://rogersparkbench.blogspot.com/2009/04/special-pulido-bulletin-from-john-curry.html

What a tool. That annoys the election workers when you write in a candidate who’s not a registered write in candidate. Stinking RINO pig. Many of the GOP ward committeemen are democrat plants.

Chicago had ward committeeman elections in Feb. 2008. Curry probably hopes that, when he runs for re-election, in 2012, the voters will forget that he was disloyal to a Republican, in March & April 2009.

Mine is a rat plant who’s been there for decades and doesn’t bother to return emails asking why one should vote for him. I voted for his opponent who lost big.

I was referring to the national party morphing into Dem Light, not her. Sorry if I was clear as mud. The party of Amnesty Juan will never be more than a marginal player; it has to return to conservatism and provide the alternative America wants.

God bless her. She’s remarkable. But that district is a lost cause for anyone but a machine Dem pol. No amount of money would make a rat’s arse difference. At best, in a district like that, you can articulate a message that may get thru to a few people, but they will vote straight Dem no matter who’s on the ticket or how much money has been spent.

I agree that Republicans need to be more conservative. My congressman is Mark Kirk (R-IL). He’s pro-choice, pro-gun control, pro-gay marriage, pro-illegal alien, and anti-Iraq surge. I emailed him, four times, and I asked why he’s a Republican. I didn’t get a response. I emailed four of his aides and asked them why he’s a Republican. None of them responded. Next year, he’ll probably run for the U.S. Senate. I hope that he’ll run and lose the primary to a conservative.

Sounds like you were involved in this campaign... Local FRs were asked to turn out . Did they ? What were they assigned to do ?
Were Catholic churches leafleted after their masses ? Were there signs placed on vehicles with Pulido Signs on them along with signs reading stop late term abortions ?

Was there any effort to circulate printed material within precincts (commonly known as “blitzing”) and in particular was this piece used ? Scroll to this
posted in http://www.theusmat.com/home.htm

Or this piece using this theme...Vote April 7th...Its Your choice...less taxes... less government.. Rosanna Pulido ..or less change when to the store you go..For a refreshing change give this lady your vote...
Or was there any material containing this theme...Elect Rosanna Pulido Conserve Your Money

I’d sorta like to know

Party did zilch here. We had this seat as recently as 1997. Look at what occurred with a “nobody” candidate in New Orleans’s LA 2nd. That district hadn’t elected a Republican since 1888, one of the longest Dem-held seats in the nation. In low turnout specials, you can score an upset. The Dems won a string of them in heavily GOP districts during Dubya’s 2nd term.
