Ober and Out

herd mentality
It's official. Perennial candidate Jim Oberweis has kept alive his perenniality streak. Oberweis failed to get elected to the 14th Congressional District:
AP declares Democrat US Rep. Lauren Underwood winner in Illinois’ 14th District over Republican Jim Oberweis
Typical of a perennial candidate, Oberweis prematurely declared victory on election night:
GOP Candidate Jim Oberweis Declares Victory, But Democrat Lauren Underwood Does Not Concede In Tight 14th Congressional District Race
And he refuses to concede, even after after losing:
AP projects Underwood to win 14th District, but Oberweis vows to fight on
One spokesman said: "Jim Oberweis has the qualities to be President!"

Your LakeCountyEye will keep you apprised when further developments warrant.

Declaring this race is premature. They are still counting ballots in Puerto Rico.

Nothing is over! Was it over when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor?

I am so happy Lauren won she is so much better than Jim Oberweis.

If only Mr. Overwhite attended more of President Cheato’s COVID rallies in Wisconsin. Same for Ex Lake County’s Finest Curran. Surely more campaigning in Wisconsin would have produced better results in Illinois.

Many people are pleased with the Joe Biden, Dick Durbin and Lauren Underwood victories, in Lake County. (✷‿✷)
