Paul Schimpf (R-Waterloo) , who graduated from the Naval Academy and spent 20 years in the U. S. Marine Corps, retired in 2013 as a Lt. Col. and soon thereafter was the 2014 Republican nominee for Attorney General, taking on Lisa Madigan, a 12 year incumbent, and getting outspent and beat handily.
But, Schimpf recovered quickly, beating former Lt. Gov. Sheila Simon, the daughter of the late and storied U. S. Senator Paul Simon (also a former guest of Public Affairs), although Schimpf was again outspent big time, for a downstate Senate seat in 2016.
You can also watch here the show featuring GOP GOV candidate and Lt. Col. Schimpf (Ret.) a twenty year U. S. Marine Corps Vet, discuss his experience as an advisor to Iraqi prosecutors and also as a Marine who helped “Collect the witnesses” when in 2005 Saddam Hussein was tried for war crimes and other crimes against his people.
Schimpf also discusses how his military background in solving complex problems by balancing competing interests prepared him for being Governor of Illinois.
Substantively, Schimpf focuses on how he would prosecute politically, not legally, Gov. Pritzker during a campaign for Governor for his failure to protect the most vulnerable to Covid– the elderly, those often with pre-existing conditions in nursing, long-term care and retirement homes and Vets at long term care facilities, as at LaSalle.
Schimpf also indicts the Governor for overdoing (Too many, too much and too long) lock-downs. Schimpf argues that philosophy of the Governor was supported neither by the science, nor the data, as early as April, 2020. Moreover, Schimpf argues that mis-judgement by Gov. Pritzker hurt the health and economic well-being of the people of IL tremendously.
Schimpf, who is Pro-Life, talks of trying to change the culture in IL to make abortions unthinkable, even if they remain legal.
GOP GOV Candidate Schimpf is also critical of the Governor for the extremely long delays incurred by IL citizens when they seek to obtain FOID cards, necessary for them to possess guns lawfully.
