Paul McKinley has won the Republican primary in Chicago to replace Jessie Jackson Jr. in the House of Representatives. The sad thing is that there were less than 2,000 votes cast in the Republican primary. I don’t know much about Mr. McKinley, but what I admired about his campaign is that he ran against the Democratic Machine that nurtured the current occupant of the White House rather than the other Republican in the race. He went after Chicago corruption hammer and tongs, showed no mercy and gave no quarter. The result: not only did he win using these tactics, he wasn’t even rubbed out! Now he goes up against New York City Mayor Bloomberg’s bought and paid for candidate in April. Congratulations and best of luck to him.
