Loss Leader

Entrenched incumbent Dan McConchie's tenure may be coming to an end:
Sen. John Curran has rounded up more than enough votes to depose current Senate Republican Leader Dan McConchie.
Veterans Day updates: McCombie, Curran likely in; Butler out; SAFE-T Act talks continue
It goes without saying that the job of the Senate Minority Leader is to funnel Springfield dollars back into his home district. For roads and bridges, for instance.  And if Dan McConchie is bounced from the Senate leadership how is Long Grove going to pay for all the repairs to the covered bridge?

On the other hand, as things stand, Lake County only gets back 53 cents for every dollar sent to Springfield:
One Lake County GOP spokesman said: "Vote for us. We are the Party of limited government."

That's all your LakeCountyEye has. Get off the dime.
