FYI SMH - 56,944 people in Illinois voted for an avowed Nazi

56,000 voters in Illinois House district preferred Holocaust denier to moderate Democrat

Self-proclaimed Nazi Arthur Jones, running as a Republican, managed more than a quarter of the vote against Democratic Rep. Dan Lipinski in the district that includes parts of Chicago’s South Side and several neighboring suburbs.

Lipinski, one of the most conservative Democrats in the House, coasted to re-election.

Jones, 70, ran unopposed in the GOP primary to capture the party's nomination in March. State Republican leaders, who hadn't bothered to put up a candidate in the longtime Democratic stronghold, immediately urged voters to shun him.

Lipinski (D) 158,161 74%
Nazi scum (R) 56,944 26%

2. My sister lives in that district and is shaking her head over it.

Lots of conservatives on Chicago's SW side and in some of the area's near-in suburbs. Disgusting.

3. We have a special breed of Republicans in Illinois. "Ham Sandwich Republicans"

That's what I call them, anyway. They'd vote for a ham sandwich as long as it was listed as an R on the ballot.

8. Corey Stewart got more than 40%, Steve King won, DeSantis got 50%, Trump got 62 million, etc.

But it's just economic anxiety.
