From the Jill Morgenthaler Congressional Campaign:
“The Chicago Tribune and the Daily Herald are the latest in a slew of Democratic Primary endorsements from prominent public officials and organizations including President Bill Clinton’s 1992 Campaign Manager and former DNC Chair David Wilhelm, Illinois Tollway Commissioner Brian McPartlin, Illinois AFL-CIO, Illinois Federation of Teachers, United Auto Workers, Illinois Operating Engineers, Illinois Association of Firefighters, Letter Carriers Branch 825, IBEW Locals 21 and 9, Chicago Federation of Labor, Communications Workers of America, and Illinois Asbestos Workers.”
Jill Morgenthaler faces Stan Jagla in the 6th Congressional Democratic Primary. Some speculate that Jagla’s recently announced $900 Billion (yes “B”) lawsuit against mega bank ABN Amro may take focus away from his congressional campaign. For some perspective, the suit asks for compensatory and punitive damages roughly equivalent to the Gross Domestic Product of India or South Korea.
