GOP Moderate Kirk Wins Ill. Senate Primary
http://www.newser.com ^ | 2-2-2010 Updated 22 minutes ago | By Will McCahill

Newser) – Moderate Mark Kirk has won Illinois’ Republican Senate primary, blowing away two conservative opponents backed by tea-party contingents. The congressman has 56% of the vote with more than 82% of precincts reporting—giving him a 37% lead over Patrick Hughes. Analysts predicted that a clear Kirk victory would take much of the steam out of the tea-party movement.

On the Democratic side, the Chicago Tribune reports, state treasurer Alexi Giannoulias looks close to clinching the nomination, setting up a fight with Kirk for the Senate seat vacated by President Obama.

Something like that...

The Repukelican powers that be in Illinois better consider this a wake up call!

Conservatives did well in Illinois... except
too many of them ran and Hughes could have used some support/endorsement from the Conservative/gubernatorial candidates and vice-versa.

Run Patrick Run!

Agreed. The Mccains and the Specters and the Collins-Snowes have been the bane of the GOP. Their idea of bipartisanship is to help the Democrats get whatever they want, no questions asked.

They read the polls and made the spin before the election that this would take the steam out of the Tea Party movement if they lost, when it was clear Kirk would win.

Illinois is getting ready to take the same track as Michigan and California. What you vote for is what you get.

» It might be better if the Dhimmicrat wins this one in the fall.

That's my thinking as well. This is not a must-win seat for us.

Sure, it would be cool if we could say Republicans picked off "Obama' seat" but...if this guy does it, you just know the spin would be "See?? Moderates win! Moderates win! Widen the tent! Move to the left!"

Forget it. I'd really just as soon see this RINO do what his kind do best: lose!

You’re absolutely right when you say “Patrick Hughes should run as an independent conservative. Or someone should. IL voters deserve better than two liberals!”

Is there a conservative person with good name recognition who is not a politician that could be persuaded to run?

What about the Governor’s race? How do you feel about it?

The Governor's race has a real conservative. My prediction is the IL party establishment will see to it that Brady loses. Their worst nightmare is a conservative shakeup of the corrupt power structure dominated by liberals there.

Name recognition, media support, and sheepish nature of Republicans helps progressives.
Hughes doubled his support in 3 weeks. If the primary were in March, he could have won.

You are right.

I can’t and won’t compromise and say to myself or be told by others that if I don’t vote for Kirk then the demtards will win the seat.

Maybe then, from the ashes of this once proud party and the home state of Ronald Reagan, we can resurect a political party that we can be proud of!

Nonsense. Apart from Kirk, there’s a strong grassroots conservativce resurgence in the Republican party. I can’t think of a brighter set of up and coming young conservatives than Plummer and Andrzejewski. Brady’s not too bad and one of the reasons he probably defeated Dillard, if he does, will be because Dillard is closer to the Chicago area and therefore, in the minds of most, to the Combine.

When was the last time Illinois had two downstaters running for governor and lieutenant governor?

Cut it out with the blanket statements. Even Kirk could have been defeated if a decent conservative had stepped forward. They all went after the governorship. Fine. The governor can play a big role in a Reagan-style rebuilding. Take over the party, kick the Combine out.

Agree with you. Scotch the Senate and focus on the statehouse. The next time an election rolls around, IL voters will be able to have a real choice not just two parties agreeing on the direction of government.

I have no doubt of that. Patrick Hughes or a candidate like him could still win. There is no great love for Kirk. He didn’t win because people understood who they were voting for he won because he hid from the competition and masked his identity. I think when we look at the results of the breakdown of the Governors race which had conservative candidates with more money it is pretty clear Kirk shouldn’t have won this. He managed to slick his way in. Now I want nothing more than to see him lose and lose badly. We don’t need his seat. We can pick up seats in the South and be happy campers. We don’t need a new Lincoln Chafee in the Senate. I’d like nothing more than to smack the Republican leadership who setup Kirk for the seat in the face like NY 23. I think Hughes could win. I hope he considers it.

He was the machine's candidate and had the backing of liberal state-controlled Chicago newspapers plus name recognition, which appeared to matter more to voters than his liberal voting record.

It would probably be preferrable if the Democrat beats this scumbag Kirk. Personally, I’d rather be stabbed in the face than stabbed in the back. Scumbags like Kirk simply cannot be rewarded.

An independent conservative could blindside the two liberals. But that means grassroots support, money and organization. Brown showed it could be done but it would take a lot of work to pull it off.

You simply ask for the ballot of the party of your choice. But I don’t think deliberate efforts by one party to interfere with the other took place in ANY of the major races. The major ones were too hotly contested and candidates needed all their own people to vote for them rather then sending them over to influence the other party.

Look, Kirk won because he had no real opposition. Stop trying to explain it by some Democrat conspiracy to slate a weak candidate. The Dems would a million times rather have had Hughes than Kirk to run against.

The congressional races in the 8th and 10th (Kirk’s vacated seat) and 14th districts produced good conservative Republican candidates. The governor/lt. gov. races were won by strong conservatives. So now someone says the Combine will deliberately destroy Brady? No! They don’t have that power any more. What will destroy Brady is infighting among conservatives. If the conservatives would just get behind Brady (or Dillard) and back him in unity instead of bickering among themselves he’ll win.

I get so tired of the defeatist attitude I see on FR. Yes, there are plenty of Rinos out there and plenty of bad things have happened.

But some darn good things happened tonight in Illinois. Wake up, take an honest look at the situation. Stop fighting the last war.

Probably. But I’m not sure that is the best strategy. We have a strong Conservative slate for governor. Creating a third party movement at this moment instead of trying to do a Reagan grassroots take over and driving a stake through the heart of the Combine ought to be the goal. The Tea Party movement can be a catalyst in this. Putting a lot of energy into a third party only for one race (Senate) would undermine the effort to take over the state party by conservatives. We have an opportunity. We might fail, but we would be foolish not to try. And I don’t see how making the Senate race a three-way race helps. The time to defeat Kirk was in the primary. Accept the fact that he won because the best candidates went for the governorship and go with our strengths.

“Anyone who donates to the RNC will have their money go to this liberal! Give direct to conservatives instead!”

And the RNCC gets really testy when you bring such things to their attention. On a recent conversation with one such RNCC fund raiser, I was scolded for saying I was unhappy about Snowe, Collins and Specter (who was never denounced) and was told that it was the RNC who got Christie, McDonnell and Scott Brown elected. When informing him I will continue to give direct to the candidates, he said .... don’t remember exactly but it was something along the lines of deserving whatever I get and not to blame them, or some such nonsense. He was quite irate by the end of it.

I tell you though as a resident of Illinois who had the opportunity to live in a free state (Utah) for thirteen years...Illinois people suck. Even Republicans here are mostly liberal trash.

He is just horrible. I don’t get it. I know what a moderate is. A moderate is someone who meets you somewhere near the middle. This guy never sees fit to protect the unborn, gun rights, or traditional values. Not once has he stood up, not even in a small token way for causes of liberty for the individual. His only saving grace is he hasn’t been running his mouth off at conservatives as a lot of so called liberal moderates like to. I just could not in good conscience ever help this guy or vote for him. He isn’t even a good fiscal conservative. He opperates like earmark junction and voted to expand government run health care programs over a Bush veto. I wish there was something redeeming. He has a record and it makes John McCain look like Jesse Helms in comparison.

To Illinois Freepers, (other locations too),going forward:

If you live in a precinct with out a committeeman, sign up (it doen’t take very many signatures to get on the primary ballot).

If you live in a precinct where the committeeman is ineffective or not well liked, sign up and run against him/her.

If you live in a precinct where the committeeman is a well liked moderate who is working hard, get aquainted, make friends, and educate them in a friendly way.

This is the way the grass roots can impact who gets to run for every single office in the USA. The number one priority to take back this country should be to get a conservative committeeman is every single precinct.

Then you will be endorsing candidates and you will be replacing the current establishment, and be in a position to help to get good conservative choices on the ballot.

Well, I agree with most of what you say.

Still, I will NOT vote for Kirk the jerk in November!

A Conservative candidate that can come forward for the November election will get my vote. When the “train-wreck” that is Obama and the demotard party that is becoming increasingly unpalatable to regular tax-paying voters derails this year. A Conservative who dared to run will (I believe) look very Scott Brownish!

I hope the Republican powers that be in Illinois, choke!

They did. Don’t you get it? Apart from Kirk, the Combine lost tonight. Seize the momentum, drive a stake through its heart. Get behind Brady and Plummer—they’re going to need defending against the charges that they are Taliban-Fundamentalists, Religious Right, knuckle-draggers. Get behind the seizure of the statewide apparatus by genuine Conservatives.

Get off your stupid Kirk-kick. Go look up Plummer’s record. Brady’s. Andrzejewski’s — he lost but he’s an up and coming strong Conservative.

Get behind these guys and help them remake the party from the bottom up instead of pissing into the wind against Kirk.

I’d agree on a third party challege being useless.

If things continue as they are, several Republicans are going to win just because they aren’t Democrat’s. A protest vote won’t matter. It’s one of those time’s when a wave of public discontent makes everything else irrelevant to most voters.

Fighting this with a third party would just divert resources from good candidate elsewhere and for what? Not to win. At best the Demoacrt would win. I don’t care if the Democrat beats the Liberal Republican but I do care if a conservative is beaten because we were seeking vengence here. Conservatives should have gotten involved months ago. Most didn’t. Accept this as a valuable lesson and move on.

We are holding some cards we cannot reveal just yet. We’ve got some thinking to do, based on the results tonight. There should be relevant news in the next two weeks.

As for the governor’s race, better Brady than McKenna or Dillard. I was rooting for Adam. Brady is still problematic in some respects. Nobody’s perfect.
