Decision '21: Ald. Harris closer to the chair of D.P.I.

 Yeah been cribbing a lot from the CapFax as of late. Probably should do better but surely Rich Miller doesn't mind that much. He's a good source as far as what's going on politically in Illinois. If you have sources that I should look at for this state or in the city let me know.

Either way Harris is reportedly close to being the new state Democrat chairwoman she's gotten a few endorsements and that translates into weighted votes of the states Democrat committee-people two from each of the state's 18 congressional districts. She's got a slight edge over Congresswoman Robin Kelly.

And did you know there was yet another candidate who's vying for the state chair of the Democratic Party of Illinois. Latinx Democrats want to put their own person in charge of the state party.
Since the fall we had a commenter in Eddie come over and in the last update about the chair of DPI asked an important question of Congresswoman Kelly which is whether or not she has the ability to juggle her duties in Washington with coming back to Illinois to chair the state party? Perhaps one question to look at. Also from the CapFax Kelly had a look at the state party's finances why was federal hard money converted into soft money.

Ah campaign finance intrigue....
And then Harris, over the history of this blog we've had a few stories on her. What would her controlling the party do for the 8th Ward? It would've been something if John Stroger has ever been state Democrat Chairman and he was a longtime ward boss while he was the Cook County Board President. 

 Either way it seems things are shaking out for now and we see how things will shake out!
