Hard To Take Campo Seriously
Seventh District Republican congressional candidate Gabrielle Campo has been running anything but a conventional campaign since winning a spot on the ticket to replace Jon Elrod on the November ballot. I've received press releases about balloon rides, neighborhood clean up efforts and preventing teen-age suicide. I've yet to see her offer a single reason based on a substantive issue why voters should choose her over U.S. Rep. Andre Carson. If her goal is to ensure that Andre Carson wins this November's election by a bigger margin than his grandmother ever won a race, she is succeeding. Each passing day confirms the reason I supported Pat O'Connor over her at the GOP caucus. This woman isn't ready to run for city council let alone Congress.
