Jacobs gets Trib endorsement

While searching for something else, I just came across the Chicago Tribune's rundown of contested primary races for state senate.

For the 36th District, they write:
36th District (northwest Illinois): Incumbent Democrat Mike Jacobs of East Moline took over daddy Denny Jacobs' seat and has performed ably, even with occasional flashes of independence. Where he runs into trouble is when he opens his mouth--last year he likened his efforts on behalf of the gaming industry to Rosa Parks' contributions to the civil rights movement.

Paul Rumler, of Rock Island, is bright and conscientious and, like Jacobs, reliably pro-labor, but he is short on experience and specific ideas. Jacobs is endorsed.
It's hard to quarrel with their assessment of either candidate. The Trib in general is regarded as having a pro-Republican outlook, I'll have to see if the Sun-Times has their endorsements up yet.

Mike Jacobs also just came up with over 11K worth of radio equipment for the village of Hampton, Ill for its Police Dept.

Thanks Senator.

I hear Jacobs snagged over 170k for various East Moline projects also... Go Mike!

Anyone else find it kind of creepy to think that someone might be writing in here congratulating themselves and referring to themselves in the third person?

It's fine to support who you want, but is the blog really just a place for this person to post what amounts to poorly written campaign fliers?

I think there might be a screw loose somewhere.

Mike, after the election you should have plenty of time on your hands - you could see a shrink, or even a masseuse. They daddy can get you another job, perhaps as a lobbyist.

I can't believe that Sen. Mike Jacobs doesn't have a web site with all of his endorsements on it. I understand that it is an impressive list.

I believe that BIG Mike Jacobs would make a great lobbiest when he retires from politics. I understand that his father is one of the best in the industry.

Great, I think he should do it now, he's far too greedy to be a public servant. Follow the money Mike, it will be better for you, and for the people of the district.

Mike was a born public servant. He has been out for the little guy. He has supported bringing education and jobs to the QC area. He has a wonderful wife and a great son. It is nice to see such a nice family man working for the people of the 36th district.

A nice family man? I've heard some of his language, in public even, and it's pretty lewd for a family man.

So BIG Mike is out for the little guy? If this is true then why no debate with little Paul Rumler. We've all seen the vast difference in the two campains budgets. I would defiantely consider Rumler the little guy in this race. I am giddy with anticipation for the upcoming debate, I'm sure BIG Mike will make this happen if he wants to stay true to his "public servant" and "watching out for the little guy" deep rooted values.

He is for the little guy that is from his district. Rumler is only here to run for Senate as the paper stated.

He's not! His website says he's a fifth Generation quad citian, graduated from Moline High, and Blackhawk. Seems like an odd choice of schools for someone that isn't from the district.

WHy don't you tell the rest of the story. You are so biased tword Rumler that one would think that it is Rumler himself running this blogg.

Despite how biased the dope was to Sen. Jacob, Mike defeated Rummler by a 14% marine.

Hmmm.

Jacobs won by one vote from a "14% marine"? !! ??

Does that mean they'd had 86% of themselves blown off, or what?

What was the other 86%?

Army? Coast Guard?
