Victories Show that Illinois is Ready for Real Reform
This has been a great night for Republicans across the county and right here in Illinois. After more than a year of tough campaigning, the 2010 Election results are in.
The Chicago Young Republicans are thrilled that Mark Kirk has won the Illinois Senate seat recently held by President Barack Obama.
This is a real repudiation of the current president and his policies since leaving Illinois for Washington.
The CYRs are also excited that the GOP has won a majority the U.S. House of Representatives and that our state will be sending at least three, and hopefully four, new Republicans to D.C. including Adam Kinzinger, Randy Hultgren, Bobby Shilling, and we hope Joe Walsh. We especially congratulate Bob Dold on his victory in the 10 congressional district, his first run for public office.
While we do not yet know the final result in the gubernatorial election, the CYRs want to congratulate Bill Brady on running a strong campaign based on principles and reforming our broken state government. We hope to congratulate him on a win before too much longer. In the meantime, we can give a hearty congrats to Judy Baar Topinka on winning the Comptroller election and Dan Rutherford who will serve as our next State Treasurer after his victory.
The CYRs look forward to working with our newly elected representatives at all levels of government to put Illinois back on the right track to good governance and prosperity.
We would also like to congratulate all the amazing local Republican candidates who ran strong campaigns that represented the Republican philosophies of limited government, personal liberty, free market principles and limited taxation.
The CYRs were proud to help all Chicago area Republicans in the last few months by fundraising, calling voters, knocking on doors, dropping off literature at homes and placing yard signs.
This election is only the first step in a long process to bring reform to Chicago, the surrounding suburbs and the state of Illinois. The CYRs will continue to boldy lead that effort in Chicago.
