Doremus Jessup: Dillard has been endorsed by the same people who are cratering Illinois. More of the same? Not wanted here. We need a well run state, not more political crony career politicians like Dillard.

Smart folks are headed for the exists - out of the dire state of the State of Illinois. Let's face it, we've been losing population for decades and for many a good reason. Illinois is resembling Michigan more and more each day and we're surrounded by other has been/used to be cities: Milwaukee, Gary, Waukegan, North Chicago, Aurora, Kankakee, Peoria, Rockford, Cleveland, Akron, Dayton, Columbus, Indianapolis, Moline, etc, etc. Chicago can't float Illinois' and the Midwest's boat{s} alone. 'Go west', go east, but - go, before the dire state of the State of Illinois and the Midwest falls down on your head!
