CHICAGO – Cook County GOP Chairman Sean Morrison is putting his money where his mouth is. He's not simply asking everyone else to write a check to the County GOP, on August 9th, he made a personal donation of $10,800.
Morrison's donation coordinates with the launching of a Chairman's Club – for those who make an annual maximum contribution to the Republican organization within the state's most populated county.
“We are in a battle to save Illinois and Cook County is on the front line. For too long we have conceded Chicago and Cook County to the Democrats but that ends now,” said Chairman Sean Morrison. “I am excited to announce I am forming the Cook County Republican Party Chairman’s Club and will be the founding member with a maximum annual donation of $10,800.”
Morrison, who also serves as a Cook County Board commissioner and owns a private security business, said the investment in the organization's future is critical and he is confident the fundraising effort will be successful.
"As a businessman, who will continue to be personally invested in our Party, I know we must maximize contributions by creating an efficient business model for the Party," Morrison said. "My goal is to spend as much money per dollar on quality Republican candidates in winnable races, invest in long-term strategic efforts to build a foundation for our future in Cook County, and recruit leaders and candidates to build our Party.”
He said that with the investment in candidate recruitment, digital efforts, voter registration efforts, and long-term strategic planning and infrastructure growth, the Cook County Republican Party’s Chairman Circle will be instrumental in "saving Cook County and Illinois from the policies which have held us back for too long."
Isn’t this the guy that ran against a Republican in a primary?
Yes I remember he did, he ran against patlak, something about patlak soliciting and taking campaign money from the same folks as the Democrats??
Seems to me several Republicans throughout Illinois run against one another, the Democrats never seem to have this problem, I wonder why not?
Ummmm – Isn’t that why we have Primaries?
