The impossible finally happened…
Mike Madigan, the longest serving Speaker of the House in the history of the country, has finally been dethroned.
We told you earlier this week how Madigan was on the ropes. Not able to get to the requisite 60 votes within his caucus to retain power, he abruptly “suspended” his campaign. We thought it was another Madigan trick.
But IT WASN’T.
Just yesterday, Representative Chris Welch was sworn in as our newly elected Speaker of the Illinois House.
Madigan was FIRED.
BUT, we need your help to keep this momentum going. Along with the US Attorney’s corruption investigation into Madigan’s machine, Illinois Republican victories - including flipping 4 House seats - led to an internal revolt amongst the House Democratic Caucus.
We can do the same thing to Governor JB Pritzker - the next corrupt Democrat we must defeat.
The campaign against a billionaire bully won’t be cheap. And we need your help to power the message so that it reaches every voter. Chip in now >>
Will you help us keep the momentum going? Will you help us defeat Pritzker? I have a feeling you will and I look forward to partnering with you to save Illinois!
