Biss dumps socialist running mate; announces second choice Rockford state rep

CHICAGO – Just a little over a week ago, State Senator Daniel Biss (D-Chicago) introduced with great excitement his running mate for the Democrat 2018 gubernatorial race to be Chicago Alderman Carlos Rosa. Rosa's identity with the Democratic Socialists of America and his support for anti-Semitic movements was not received well by even the Bernie Sanders' lovin' crowd. 

Biss dropped Rosa like a hot potato, and Friday – just 8 days after announcing Rosa's candidacy – Biss announced his second choice – State Rep. Litesa Wallace of Rockford.

Wallace was appointed to her Illinois House seat in 2014 to replace outgoing Chuck Jefferson. 

Litesa Wallace isn't the first in her family to run for lieutenant governor of Illinois. Her cousin, conservative Republican Dr. Eric Wallace, considered a run for LG in 2006 before running for the Illinois Senate. (updated)

  1. Daniel Biss’ political tin ear regarding his running mate picks is the very least of his problems. I met this left-wing guy on the Evanston Metra platform when he was collecting signatures – and believe me – HE HAS ABSOLUTELY NO PERSONALITY! Later saw him on Channel 11 and he has no public speaking ability either.
    He emits all the warmth of a 40 watt light bulb and all the charisma of a cabbage.
    His family money got him this far – but he has already far surpassed the level of his incompetence.
    You needn’t worry about ever seing a Governor Biss.
