Conservative Brand’s take on the challenge to Dan Patlak,
There is one candidate in the primary this March 20th, Dan Patlak, who demonstrates the conservative qualities the Republican Party should always embody; as the sole GOP commissioner on the Cook County Board of Review, he’s conscientious, articulate and experienced. But unfortunately, he’s being challenged in an expensive, viciously personal, and divisive primary. And in addition, the campaign has become tangled in the weeds of the good old Illinois Republican/Combine swampland, a.k.a. North Cook Co. vs. South Cook Co. Never heard of that particular battleground? Well, it’s the Land of the Chicago Way – so plan on getting to know the Saul Alinsky model for political campaigning before you come to the end of this story, a few paragraphs down.
It’s one of those tell me it ain’t so kind of things. Isn’t this the kind of infighting Republicans would expect a State Party chair to tamp down?
