If Connelly wins, we can blame the endorsements by the Illinois Education Association and the Illinois Retired Teachers Association for their mutual incompetence!




"A 12-vote margin separated Michael Connelly from Laura Ellman with all 222 precincts reporting unofficial results. Connelly, a Lisle attorney who was first elected to the seat in 2012, received 47,476 votes, while Ellman, an assessor at Argonne National Laboratory, had 47,464" (Daily Herald). 


Let me say this again: if Connelly wins, we can blame the endorsements by the Illinois Education Association and the Illinois Retired Teachers Association for their mutual, unreliable idiocy!

  2. "Unions, organizations formerly steeped in the doctrine of class struggle and filled with those who sought broad social and political rights for the working class, have been transformed into domesticated partners of the capitalist class. They have been reduced to simple bartering tools. The social demands of unions early in the twentieth century that gave the working class weekends off, the right to strike, the eight-hour day, and Social Security have been abandoned” (Chris Hedges).

  3. From John Dillon:

    "Nationally it was a blue ripple, but Illinois was experiencing a nice wave. Then, along comes the IEA/IRTA with an endorsement for the grinning weasel. And their excuses were 'you back a winner who is in your corner?' NO, you backed a guy who would have lost, except for your backing…and he was never in your corner to begin with."

  4. Sen. Mike Connelly is now trailing his Democratic opponent by 512 votes: “On Tuesday night, Connelly was leading by 12. Should Connelly have been declared the winner on Tuesday night? Absolutely not. Hundreds and hundreds of legitimately cast ballots hadn’t been counted on Tuesday night.”-Capitol Fax.
