Letter: Does the candidate with the most money win?

To the Editor:

In the March 20 primary, two candidates with far less cash are challenging incumbents.

Bruce Rauner is being challenged by State Rep. Jeanne Ives, an attractive woman with six years in the state legislature, a degree in economics from West Point and a career in the Army before raising a family.

Ives is pro-life and pro-fiscal responsibility. Rauner talked a good talk. He faced awful odds, but he hasn’t delivered.

He has alienated the conservative GOP base by signing bills he promised to veto. He’ll be red meat for a Democrat opponent.

Adam Kinzinger ran in the 16th Congressional District in 2012, after his seat in the 11th was redistricted/gerrymandered. His grades from conservative foundations are from D-plus to F (Heritage Action, Numbers USA and Conservative Review).

Kinzinger and 33 other congressmen sent a letter to Speaker Paul Ryan demanding he present an amnesty bill for DACA illegals before the Christmas recess.

James Marter is running against Kinzinger and will join the Liberty Caucus if elected to the Congress.

So, does the guy with the most money win the election?

He doesn’t, if you vote in the primary March 20. Let your neighbors know they have a choice.
