The next candidate we are highlighting in our Tater-Tot list profiles is the Bill Brady-Jason Plummer ticket for Illinois Governor and Lieutenant Governor.
Brady and Plummer are not typical moderate Illinois Republicans that people have come to disapprove of. They are a true conservative ticket that is giving people in the Land of Lincoln a reason to believe in their state again. Bill Brady won a crowded primary in February which was demonstrated by a strong ground attack from his grassroots team. The difference was defeating Republican-in-name-only Kirk Dillard by less than 100 votes. Dillard was infamous for his support of Barack Obama. Jason Plummer won the Lieutenant Governor primary by a strong margin.
As many people in Illinois are growing tired of the politics of the Blagojevich-Quinn administration, they are looking for a reason to believe in their state again. Bill Brady is not from Chicago and is a business owner from Downstate Illinois who shares and lives our conservative values. As Illinois is dealing with Gov. Pat Quinn’s ineptitude of handling the state budget, Bill Brady and Jason Plummer have used this to their advantage to sell to the voters that they represent real change.
We think Bill Brady, if elected, will be an excellent ally with other Midwest conservative governors in helping get the region to regain its economic dominance. It is these reasons alone why the Tater-Tot List is proud to endorse Bill Brady and Jason Plummer for Illinois Governor and Lieutenant Governor.
