Steve Aldrich has been making lots of noise at Soapblox/Chicago, but there's not a whole lot to show for it in the Kane County votes. That's not a knock on Steve; just a simple observation of the facts.
With his avid support of the duly-elected challenger to Denny "J. Dennis" Hastert in the November election, I thought maybe there was a groundswell of support for Democrats up in Kane that was not registering on my political sliderule.
Overall, Kane County has a better than 50% vacancy rate (way more, actually, but I've had to be judicious with my time) among Democratic precinct committeemen, and none of the numbers are out of double digits.
In fact, the highest God-Damned vote-getter for PC was one with 87 votes. That's not very much God-Damned better than in Kendall County, where Primary election voting was, overall, a big joke.
Similar to Kendall, Kane County Republican PCs garnered votes in triple digits throughout the county. There are also plenty of vacancies there, as well, but the numbers speak for themselves.
There's a long way to go for Democrats in Kendall County. And Kane County, as well.
