The Republican, who ran against Attorney General Madigan, was Steve Kim. Last week, I posted a wall-to-wall facebook comment, and I asked him to run for the state senate, in the 9th District. The incumbent is a Democrat, but he’s not running for re-election. No Republican is running.
That’s a shame. It’s not likely we can win that seat but it’s not one you can justify not even having a candidate in. I wish we would contest EVERY seat of course.
