Cook County’s Republican Party is a disaster
The issue is the leadership of Cook County Chairman Sean Morrison, who is also a cook county commissioner. Morrison is a poor leader who recruited so many unqualified people to represent the Republican Party.
Republicans have the edge over Democrats in Illinois because they are fighting against crime while Democrats are fighting against abortion. Crime is more important than abortion in Cook COunty.
Yet, Morrison just filled spots with anyone he could find rather than with qualified contenders. His best candidate is Bob Fioretti but Fioretti will not be able to defeat Cook County Board President Toni Preckwinkle.
Most people are not even sure that Morrison can win re-election to his seat against newcomer Dan Calandriello, a Democrat attorney from Orland Park in the Southwest suburbs.
