With the Illinois Primary a month away the presidential race is creeping into the Land of Lincoln. Which is why openly-socialist Democratic candidate Bernie Sanders is opening his first office here today. Headlining the May Day in February event will be Jesus "Chuy" Garcia, Rahm Emanuel's leftist opponent in last year's mayoral election. Another leftist, longtime liberal gadfly Clem Balanoff is Sanders' Illinois campaign director.
Expected to attend is Ald. John Arena (45th), whose Bungalow Belt constituents are decidedly non-socialist.
It's time to keep score, patriots.
