We had quite a time at our endorsement meeting Saturday ... strong turnout and good discussion. And now for the results:

For U.S. Senate - no endorsement; the votes: James T. Marter 58.5% vs. Mark Steven Kirk 41.5%; 60% was required.

For Judge in the 12th SubcircuitSteven Kozicki was endorsed with 79.5%, needing 60%.

For Judge in the 13th SubcircuitGary W. Seyring was endorsed with 94.7%, needing 60%.

We did not endorse in the Presidential race or in the contests for Delegate or Alternate to the National Convention.

We did endorse all GOP candidates whose names will appear on the March 15 ballot as unopposed.

Thank you to all the precinct captains who attended and also to the candidates who were here to greet our crowd and/or to speak in the endorsement session. We congratulate all our endorsed candidates and look forward to a Wheeling Township effort to carry them through to the November ballot.

We already have yard signs for some of our endorsed candidates, and this weekend is supposed to bring a thaw, so come on in and get some signs even now; it's not too soon to show your support!

Tonight is the fundraising reception for our now-endorsed candidate for 13th Subcircuit Judge, Gary Seyring. I plan to attend and hope to see you between 6 and 8 p.m. at Chandler's, 401 N. Roselle Road, Schaumburg. $50 per person/$75 per couple.

Tomorrow evening is the last GOP Presidential Debate before the Iowa caucuses, hosted by Fox News Channel. Be sure to watch!

This Saturday, Jan. 30, brings the forum on school choice at the Heartland Institute, 3939 N. Wilke Road, Arlington Heights. State Rep. Tom Morrison (54th) will moderate a panel discussion and former Congressman Joe Walsh will keynote; from 1 - 3:30 p.m.

Supporters of James T. Marter will gather at Rosati's Pizza, 1770 W. Wise Road, Schaumburg, next Wednesday, Feb. 3, for a $25 fundraiser to support his bid for the U.S. Senate nomination.

Joan McCarthy Lasonde will kick off her campaign for Congress (9th District) with a $100/person fundraising reception on Thursday, Feb. 4, at Gusto of Wilmette, 1146 Wilmette Ave., Wilmette. RSVP via https://causes.anedot.com/joan-kickoff-fundraiser.

Endorsement meeting this Saturday, Jan. 23, at 8:30 a.m. here at HQ. All are welcome; voting is reserved for our precinct captains. We will be hearing from some of the candidates at the meeting before the captains cast their votes. We do not plan to endorse in the Presidential race.

If you are not a precinct captain but would like to help out in this election -- and if you'd like to have voting power at the Jan. 23 meeting -- please contact me immediately so we can meet and determine your role.

Next Wednesday, Jan. 27, Gov. Rauner will deliver his State of the State message at noon in the chamber of the House of Representatives, State Capitol, Springfield. It should be quite an electric moment in Illinois politics, especially since he called this week for a state takeover of the Chicago Public Schools; Democrats did not concur.

Then Wednesday evening, Jan. 27, supporters of Gary Seyring for 13th Subcircuit Judge are hosting a fundraiser for the candidate from 6 - 8 p.m. at Chandler's, 401 N. Roselle Road, Schaumburg. $50 per person/$75 per couple. RSVP to Brendan at 847/750-6214 or via e-mail at  This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.

Little by little, the election authorities are working through the objections to various candidates' petitions, so we will soon know what the primary contests will look like in Wheeling Township. (Contests in Congressional and judicial races are still pending in some races.)

We fully expect the petition challenges to be resolved in time for our endorsement meeting on Saturday, Jan. 23, at 8:30 a.m. here at HQ. All are welcome, but the voting is reserved for our precinct captains. We will be hearing from some of the candidates at the meeting, particularly those we've not yet heard from, before the captains cast their votes.

If you are not a precinct captain but would like to help out in this election -- and if you'd like to have voting power at the Jan. 23 meeting -- please contact me immediately so we can meet and determine your role.

Republican Women of Wheeling Township invites all to a GOP Presidential Debate watching party here at HQ tomorrow night, Thursday, Jan. 14, to cheer on the candidates together as they appear on the Fox Business Channel. The first debate starts at 5 and the second around 7. We'll be open from 5 p.m. on and invite you to bring friends to enjoy the debate together; snacks to share will be welcome, too.

We send our condolences to the David Harris family on the passing of Michelle's father.

Faithfully,

Ruth O’Connell
