IL-19 Primary Filings
All the February 2010 Primary filings are in. Tim Bagwell, PhD, (D-Olney) stated almost two months ago that wanted to be the Democratic candidate a second time.
He will have to wait until February to discover his Republican opponent. Thankfully, Rep. John Shimkus (IL-19) has company on the ballot in the Primary.
Michael Firsching, DVM, of Moro, had decided to file as a Republican candidate for Congress. Americans have suffered through numerous incumbent lies and debacles during the past few years. A Primary challenger surfacing is an eventuality and a relief to see.
Part of the ammunition against John could be his lack of humanity or simple respect for animals. How ironic that his Primary opponent is a veterinarian. Good luck to the man!
January should be a lot of fun.
