On Friday, according to the CapFax we see that effort appears to flounder a bit. Although Brady seems to have fired a broadside at one of his potential allies. Although in an update that ally has elected to abstain from such a vote. At that the meeting to decide if Brady will remain chairman could be postponed. This meeting was to take place on Saturday.
Also in other state GOP news, Peter Bella writes about how the IL GOP doesn't even have the 2nd Congressional District special election on the radar. It's something to be expected especially in a district that's solidly Democrat. That may also mean whatever negative attention the Republican nominee may have gotten in his run - he is an ex-con - he's not likely to get much help combating the negative media on that.
Also Greg Hinz at Crain's also takes aim at the attempt to remove Chairman Brady. I always somewhat viewed the State GOP as moderate. It probably has to be now given the fact that Illinois is now a solidly Democratic state and more open to gay marriage than ever before. There's nothing wrong with social conservatism, but apparently depending upon the messenger it seems to be a scary ideology although it depends on who's doing the listening.
Anyway Hinz breaks it down this way:
Mr. Brady's critics say he's done a poor job of managing the party, which got absolutely shellacked here in the November elections and faces severe financial problems. He's also unlucky enough to be the party boss at a time when infighting between the GOP's long-dominant big-business wing and its feistier social conservatives is getting intense.
