Republican gubernatorial candidate, slum lord
As seen in a post at Capitol Fax, The Joliet Herald News has a less than gleaming opinion of Ron Gidwitz, a leading Republican contender for Governor.
Illinois governors have come from all walks of life during the state's nearly 200-year history.
Some were soldiers. Some were farmers. Others were abolitionists. One was a doctor, another a pharmacist. Most were lawyers. A few were crooks.
And now that Ron Gidwitz has thrown his hat into the ring for the 2006 gubernatorial election, a new background could be added to that list: slum lord.
