Jesse Sullivan, could he have been a contender to win the GOP GOV Primary? Could he still be? Or, does opportunity only knock once? Watch on Cable and the Web. We discuss, you decide.

Could an outsider, novice millennial GOP GOV Primary candidate like Jesse Sullivan win the nomination and then reform Dem dominated IL? Many likely GOP Primary voters have been mulling that question since this show first aired eight months ago.

But, scoring only 7% in the most recent poll, it appears most voters, even with 37% of those polled undecided, are dubious of that proposition.

Down to the last six weeks of the campaign, even if Jesse Sullivan has five, or so, million dollars cash on hand, it is a real long shot for him to catch either front runner- Aurora Mayor Richard Irvin at 24% – or Senator Darrin Bailey, a close second place candidate, polling at 20%.

It could be done, but Sullivan’s campaign would need to demonstrate much more insight, vigor, confidence, leadership and flair, all traits that have been in short supply from his campaign, so far.        

Gov Candidate Sullivan: “Indiana has grown 1700 % more over the last decade than IL …It’s because of IL’s high taxes, public corruption and crime…Part 1 of Jeff Berkowitz’s interview w/Jesse Sullivan, [19:55-20:45]

Yes, IL’s property taxes are now highest in the nation. But, what specifically, would Jesse Sullivan do to enable and cause local governments to cut property taxes? It doesn’t appear Sullivan has an answer to that fundamental and key question. If he did and he told the voters, he would surely be doing much, much better than 7 %.

Anyway, watch Sullivan, part 1, and you decide if he had the potential to win the GOP GOV primary? And, if he did, did he fritter it away? Or, could he still do it now? We discuss, you decide.

Jesse Sullivan: “Some people say, if you support law enforcement… you are against minorities…my wife & our kids are Hispanic- we have a black foster daughter.” Part 2 of Berkowitz’s interview w/Sullivan, 17:58-18:38]

Yet another obvious question for downstater Sullivan: did he ever do anything to leverage that background of his wife during the campaign? Did he become the candidate of those hungering for school choice- to save Latinos and others from the failing schools in CPS, Decatur and the other inner cities of IL? It doesn’t appear so.

Yet another wasted opportunity. Why didn’t he even try? We don’t know. He has not exactly been jumping at earned media interview opportunities.  

Part 1 of our two-part Jesse Sullivan, GOP GOV Primary candidate interview airs tonight in Chicago, 8:30 pm and Midnight, Cable Ch 21 (CAN TV).
