John Laesch: “Democrats’ most formidable candidate”

Most formidable candidate

UIC Political Science Professor Dick Simpson, also a former Chicago alderman, author, progressive leader and columnist for the Chicago Sun Times, offered his assessment of IL-14th Congressional race.

Saturday’s Sun Times readers saw Simpson declare that, “He (John) is now headed to victory in the primary…”

Of course, we already knew that, but it was great to see it in print.

Simpson continued his analysis, “Laesch is the Democrats’ most formidable candidate against arch-conservative, anti-immigrant, four-time loser Jim Oberweis, who is running with Hastert’s support.”
