Given a Republican base vote of 15-19% and a plethora of Democratic candidates, a viable Republican candidate would very relevant to the election. At least one well-known local Republican, with previous experience as a candidate, has expressed strong interest, and directly discussed that interest at length with Chairman Gerson. A nationally known Conservative has also been mentioned in Conservative blogs, but has not contacted the Chicago GOP. We will not take that seriously until he does, as he cannot hope to win without the ground assets of the Chicago GOP.( Emphasis my own) Giggles and Gaffaws -Citywide.
