Oberweis gets first endorsement

Jim Oberweis has been endorsed in the Republican primary by the Family Taxpayer Network. This will lend financial help to Oberweis and may start a movement towards unification behind him. I hope this is not the case, as I believe he takes too many conservative stances to beat Blago, and his image as a wealthy businessowner won't help. Also mentioned in the article is the campaign of Steve Rauschenberger, who is expected to announce his candidacy in July, and has already met with Chicago leaders. If we are going to run a real conservative against Blago, it needs to be Steve, because Oberweis simply carries to much baggage. Currently, I am deciding between Judy Baar Topinka and Rauschenberger. Of course I would immediately endorse Jim Edgar were he to enter the race.
