The political pros on Quigley team

| 2 Comments

CHICAGO--Cook County Board Member Michael Quigley won the Democratic nomination in the race to replace Rahm Emanuel in the House with a veteran political and fund-raising team.

A win in the primary in this heavily Democratic district is tantamount to victory in the April special general election.

What about the field team? With a race like this, doesn't the field team deserve credit for turning out the most voters in a very low turnout election?

ben, don't think for one minute 'this' media outlet has any idea what a 'field team' is...lol. look at the coverage of the recent national campaign...the food and souveniers are better with the press folk. it's the illusion of access and ergo influence. welcome to the oligarghy...and it's closing breaths...
