Governor Jim Edgar stumps for Krupa in Peoria tonight

Tonight former Illinois Governor Jim Edgar arrived at a private residence in Peoria to talk to Peorian's about the importance of electing Joan Krupa as State Representative. Governor Edgar was introduced by event host Wayne Baum, who remarked, "If common sense prevailed, we wouldn't even be here tonight".



Edgar was enthusiastically welcomed by the crowd of over 100 people. Among those attending were State Representatives David Leitch and Aaron Schock, Congressman Ray Lahood, and former Peoria Mayors David Ransburg and Jim Maloof. "Springfield is in the biggest mess I have ever seen," Edgar said. "To straighten it out, we will need highly qualified, competent people in office, and from what I understand...." He never finished the sentence. The insinuation was clear. The tawdriness of the Gordon campaign became legendary this evening as the crowd embraced Joan with their support.



Governor Edgar said that in his entire career he has never seen a more qualified candidate than Joan Krupa. "I hope you all realize how lucky you are that she is willing to serve the people of Illinois. With health care being one of the most important issues of today, she is the ideal person to have working on our behalf in Springfield."

Below is my hubby, John "hob-knobbing" with the gov. It made his day! A giant Thank you to former Governor Jim Edgar and all those who travelled from Springfield and beyond to show support for the 92nd District. Please punch the ballot for Joan Krupa, State Representative on November 4.

Politics aside, I wish Jim Edgar could have been convinced to run for Governor last time around.

Diane - All your efforts are appreciated by Joan and her supporters. Too bad you and your hubby can't vote for her. You don't live in her district.
