    Here's a shot of John Laesch welcoming Chris Luzan to Lee County. John knows the territory like the back of his hand while Luzan gets mixed up about which towns he might represent.

      primary over Oberweis. At least Lauzon has represented some parts of the 14th district as a State Senator, Oberweis is a crank who has never held office or even won a primary, and since their both from Aurora, they probably would be similar in lacking knowledge about the western parts of the 14th district.

      and he is - sadly - my State Senator.  The guy was the only person in the IL General Assmbley to vote to keep it illegal to breastfeed in public in Illinois.  He couldn't find one single other Repub wingnut to go along with him.

      Also, he once tried to legally change his name to attach CPA to it, so he could have it printed that way on a ballot.

      The race is chock full of Repub nutbars, but it will be Oberweis.

        If the head mucky-mucks are going to call the shots on this one, Lauzen is at the bottom of the rung. Hastert is not a fan. Lauzen has been keeping a "Denny" file for several years in anticipation of running for the seat this year. It's not a fan club -- it's to use it against him to convince voters why Lauzen will do better than Denny.
        Lauzen is a joke to those folks, and they are not going to back him.
        They may not like the ice cream king either, but he's done more schmoozing with the big deals and I'd put my money on Oberweis.
        (I'll have a chocolate chip and butter pecan on a waffle cone, please)
