Democratic state lawmakers helping DuPage County Republicans, bi-partisanship,y'all!

There was much consternation at the polling place I worked at yesterday as Democrats had to vote a Republican ballot in order to cast a vote for their candidate who was "running as a republican". Running "as" a Republican, but in name only.

Not electing Jim Long is the hugest mistake this district could ever make. This man is the opitomy of what the Republican party used to be about. Good conservative values. Now all we have are wishy washy RINO's. Sad...

Congratulations to all of them, those elected and those who made their case to the voters. They invested their energy and their treasure in making a case to serve. Give them a chance to demonstrate the values they did as candidates. It was an excellent field.

Congrats Mr. Noonan. I know the more people get to know you will understand that what you stand for is the best possible thing for Dupage. The voters and the people you serve will be greatly impressed by your dedication and your deep interest in the issues at hand.
