Schock of the Walk

Operatives in Springfield this week might have spied Aaron Schock measuring the drapes in the Governor's mansion. According to the latest rumor ground out of the rumor mill ...
U.S. Rep. AARON SCHOCK, R-Peoria, according to the website, is telling "leading Illinois GOP honchos" that he's in the governor's race
Illinois GOP chairman Brady says party needs to broaden appeal
It is an open secret that the downstater Schock is an honorary Lake County Republican. The photographic evidence speaks for itself:
While Schock craves the office of Governor, Lake County Republicans are placing their early markers on other high offices. Lake County Sheriff Mark Curran has dibs on Illinois Attorney General:

Eighth District Congressman Joe Walsh has staked a claim on the US Senate:
Asked who was urging him on, Walsh responded: "The best kind of people in the world — real people, activists, conservatives and everyday Republicans all over the state."
Joe Walsh, tea party firebrand, weighs Senate campaign
These developments have not escaped the notice of actual Lake County Republican, Aaron Lawlor, the brand-spanking-new Lake County Chairman. Your LakeCountyEye has been told that Lawlor burns to obtain a higher office as well, before his term on the County Board expires in 2016.

Time, however, is already running out for anyone who wants to be a marquee candidate on the 2014 ballot. Your LakeCountyEye advises Lawlor to act soon or he will find himself a Republican candidate for Comptroller or Superintendent of Schools or some other unsexy down-ballot position.

As a public service your LakeCountyEye has posted an online poll. Operatives are asked to select the best fit for Lawlor from among the high offices still open:
The 2014 Election is Only Two Years Away!
Aaron Lawlor has the Right Stuff to be Illinois's Next ...
Lieutenant Governor
Attorney General
Secretary of State
U.S. Senator
10th District Congressman
Results will be forwarded to Chairman Aaron Lawlor, c/o the Lake County Board.

This is scientific data -- please, no freeping the poll!
