Building the Blue

Re-blog of the article from the McDonough County Voice:

“Area Democrats are working hard to build up the blue in McDonough County.”

“A group of enthusiastic Democratic voters and elected officials in McDonough County filled the Macomb VFW on Monday night for the McDonough County Democratic Central Committee’s annual Fish and Chicken Fry Dinner. The dinner served as a chance for the party to talk about its ongoing effort to find more “blue” voters in a historically “red” region.”

“Illinois State Treasurer Michael Frerichs made the trip to Macomb to speak at the dinner. The Champaign County native said that McDonough County reminds him of home, especially with its quality of soil, agricultural opportunities, and proximity to a 4-year university.”

“With the struggles in enrollment at Western Illinois University, Frerichs told the Voice that the state has turned the page from former Gov. Rauner’s lack of financial commitment.”
