Illinois Democrat Governor Pritzker and the Democrat Governors Association just gave all Republican voters in Illinois a magnificent gift! They told us in a multimillion dollar advertising campaign what Republican candidate for governor that they fear most in the 2020 election!! There is only one rational reason why Dems and Governor Pritzker would pay millions of dollars attacking a Republican candidate for governor in the Republican primaries. Obviously their goal is to convince Republican voters to vote against the strongest Republican candidate in the primaries and to vote for weaker candidates that they know Pritzker can beat in the November elections so that he will be reelected and will continue to cause massive damage to Illinois for another term.
What Republican candidate do they fear the most? The current Republican mayor of Aurora Illinois which is the 2nd largest city in Illinois, Mayor Richard Irwin! Why do they fear him so much? Because he has an excellent record of achievement and he is the perfect example of achieving “The American Dream”! Mayor Irwin is African-American and was born to a single mother and raised in public housing in Aurora. He beat the odds and graduated from high school and then joined the US Army to fight in “Desert Storm” and became a decorated war veteran. He then graduated from college with a B.A. and then got his law degree. Since getting his law degree he has served as a prosecutor, assistant attorney general, and defense attorney and then was elected as the first African-American mayor of Aurora. That is the definition of “The American Dream”!
How are Democrat Governor Pritzker and The Democrat Governor’s Association attacking him? Instead of admitting his wonderful achievements and his strong conservative values in prosecuting criminals, protecting the rule of law, lowering taxes, and other great achievements; they attack Irwin because he was a defense attorney who defended accused citizens hoping that would turn off Republican primary voters. They are hoping that Republicans don’t understand that our U.S. Constitution says all accused Americans are innocent until proven guilty and have a right to a defense attorney!!! Republicans need to know that Mayor Irwin did exactly what our Founding Father John Adams did when he bravely defended British soldiers accused of murder after the Boston Massacre! Actually it is pretty funny that Dems who want to defund the police and let convicted criminals “skate” after committing crimes attack Mayor Irwin for defending accused citizens. But they are hoping to fool Republican voters so they will choose a weaker candidate then Mayor Irwin.
Sadly, Democrats know that too often, Republicans lose elections because they get caught up in “The circular firing squad”. That is why they are attacking the Republican candidate for governor that they fear most in the primary before the general election. They are hoping that Republican voters don’t notice at the end of their ad attacking Republican Mayor Irwin that as required by law, it says in very tiny print “Paid for by The Democrat Governors Association”. Here is my request for my fellow Republican voters in Illinois, please don’t get “sucker punched” by Democrat Pritzker and his fellow Dems. In fact, you should vote for Republican Richard Irwin because the Dems have admitted he is the best Republican candidate that can beat Pritzker and he is a true hero that has lived the “Great American Dream”! Why else would they attack him in the Republican primary?
