Durbin in Moline today to endorse O'Brien for mayor
U.S. Senator Dick Durbin appeared in Moline today to hold a press conference to endorse Pat O'Brien for mayor.
Federal, state and local Democratic party politicos were on hand Wednesday to offer their endorsement of candidate Pat O'Brien in the non-partisan Moline mayoral election.
Rain, wind and light hail pushed the press conference from outside the proposed Western Illinois University campus along River Drive to inside the Moline Township office.
U.S. Rep Lane Evans, D-Rock Island; retired state Sen. Denny Jacobs and state Sen. Mike Jacobs, both of East Moline; state Rep. Mike Boland of East Moline; and Rock Island County State's Attorney Jeff Terronez were on hand at Wednesday's endorsement.
