Today is the first election day of this cycle where we have skin in the game.  Don Manzullo, who has been endorsed by the Madison Project and sundry conservative organizations, is going head to head against RINO Adam Kinzinger in IL-16.  Make no mistake about it – this is the real election to watch.  The presidential election has come down to two individuals; one who is only a social conservative and another who is a full-spectrum progressive.  The congressional race will the seminal battle between the pale-pastel and bold-color wings of the Republican Party.

Let’s consider the wide bifurcation between the two candidates.  Kinzinger was elected with tailwinds of the Tea Party, yet he has amassed a terrible voting record, even in this era of heightened scrutiny from conservative organizations.  Manzullo, on the other hand, stood against Republican leaders and voted against No Child Left Behind at a time when limited government was not in vogue.

This race will represent the first epic intra-party battle.  Let’s set the tone right.  All our activists in Illinoi-16 are urged to vote for Don Manzullo.
