Illinois GOP Powerbrokers Taking Even More Power from GOP Voters « Publius Forum

Illinois GOP Powerbrokers Taking Even More Power from GOP Voters « Publius Forum:

Above link is Publius Forum's take on a complicated change proposed for Illinois GOP Primaries based on a anon piece in Big Government. Read him all.

Now Dan Rutherford's a Republican who wins elections so I pay attention to him. The guy campaigns relentlessly. Just friend him on facebook and watch his schedule.

Until the Illinois GOP can give a better explaination of what's up. If a State wide winner has problems with it, I want to know what's going on.
So, while BG.com is urging the rules change to make the state a winner-takes-all system, it is unwittingly agreeing to take away even more power from the voters of Illinois. Not very democratic of them is it?

In the end, I’d rather see the way Illinois chooses delegates remain the same than allow the State Central Committee be allowed to take even more power away from Illinois voters.

No matter which candidate Treasurer Dan Rutherford is supporting and even if he has an ulterior motive for opposing the rules change, I stand with Rutherford on this one.
