Marketing and money is how Casten got in!
I noted in more than just Casten’s district the dems were running “moderate” dems who were clean cut, young looking men in their early 40s with cute wives and cute young children—big on marketing to busy mid to late 30 year old millennial voters who don’t pay much attention attention beyond popular culture issues...
A lot of “anti-gun” and “pro-choice” money flooded into Roskum’s district...Never seen so much outside issue signage...Sadly, those were two issues on which Roskum was strong.
I am not sure Roskum’s heart was in the election...As an aside he was tepid on Trump...voted party line (even if it did not support Trump).
I am not sure Roskums heart was in the election...
Roskam lost because he deserved to. He ran a crappy campaign.
