Berkowitz: The Gang of Four [Led by Mike Z]: How bad the choice was of Richard Irvin to be the GOP candidate for Governor.  Mike Z will never work in IL again…

Berkowitz: The campaign of Richard Irvin: poorly conceived, poorly executed, everything about it was wrong, and it didn’t get any better when you went down ballot [to SOS and AG]: …every bit of this campaign …What were they thinking?

 ******************************

Jeff Berkowitz and Terry Martin dissect the key results in Tuesday’s primary and take a look at the Pritzker-Bailey match up for Governor and the Duckworth-Salvi match up for U. S. Senate.

Berkowitz and Martin discuss how Kathy Salvi, now the GOP nominee to take away Duckworth’s Senate seat, could overcome a huge financial disadvantage. The focus likely will be on opportunities created by Biden’s inflation, a 40-year high; complete failure to control our borders; lack of attention to crime, brown-outs and skyrocketing energy costs; and foreign policy failures.    

Similarly, Berkowitz and Martin discuss how Bailey could catch and overtake Pritzker. In getting ready over the last 2 1/2 years for the “2024 Dem Presidential sweepstakes,” Pritzker moved to the far left and Bailey can collar him nicely with Biden’s left wing woke policies that get him a “ D top F” grade, with a 40%- 45% approval rating, at best among mainstream America.

The Biden policies that could be a huge ring around Pritzker’s collar: Gigantic federal spending that JB begged for, $5 or $6 dollar/gallon gas that Pritzker cheered for with his desire to shut down all efforts to expand oil production in the U S, and his obsession to shut down coal & natural gas and eventually nuclear; 10% food inflation, Shortage of  Infant baby formula & empty grocery shelves; lack of attention to violent crime, failed national defense policies in Afghanistan and Ukraine, just to name a few.

And, then there’s Pritzker own obsession with abortion, while ignoring the loss of more than a year’s learning in schools caused by his close cooperation with teachers’ unions to replace in-person learning with useless remote learning or even worse, closing the schools while teachers vacationed in Puerto Rico. The parents haven’t forgotten. These are big-time openings for Bailey, which he has been developing for more than two years, with his AG candidate- Tom DeVore.

************************************        

The Governor is running on IL being the abortion capitol of the country…Pritzker wants to make sure abortions are available to the folks in Missouri, Kentucky, Indiana…apparently Pritzker wants to subsidize abortion travel expenses for out of state residents…this is a  far left idea that doesn’t sell well [to taxpayers], especially not with independents, not with Republicans and there are a number of so-called moderate Dems who are not thrilled with this emphasis of Pritzker…Again, this is an opening for Senator Darren Bailey [14:25-16:05]

The Gang of Four: How bad of a choice Richard Irvin was to be the GOP candidate for Governor. What were they thinking? The Gang of Four, led by Mike Z [Zolnierowicz]. Mike Z will never work in IL again…

Such a disaster, [people] will wonder why [Mike Z] was hired for this campaign…I am sure he is a nice enough guy but…it was just a disaster of a campaign, especially the Gov campaign of Richard Irvin: poorly conceived, poorly executed, everything about it was wrong, and it didn’t get any better when you went down ballot: Secretary of State, what is that? Almost a 4 to 1 margin [State Rep. Dan] Brady is beating Milhiser…every bit of this campaign [by the Gang of Four] you say: What were they thinking? Steve Kim? He got whacked for [for Attorney General] by nine points…DeVore is somebody who was running for the last two years [without knowing it] [9:45-21:15]
