No bipartisan words from Krishnammorthi. Afterall, these thousands will spend a few bucks in our NW Burbs too at restaruants, hotels, and gas stations. Better than an empty convention center.
At the same time, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m., 8th District Democratic primary contender Raja Krishnamoorthi, of Hoffman Estates, will lead a “Defend Middle Class Jobs” rally outside the convention grounds. Krishnamoorthi says he's “outraged” that the tea party has chosen to hold TeaCon 2011 “in his own backyard and has called on Democrats to join together and stand up to the tea party on behalf of the middle class and President Obama.”
