Capitol Fax: Robin Kelly wins DPI chair

 Well tonight the cribbing from CapFax continues Congresswoman Robin Kelly is the new Chair of the state Democratic Party. She effectively succeeds former state house Speaker Michael J. Madigan. Kelly defeats 8th Ward Alderman Michelle Harris this evening.

There were a number of items coming out of the jockeying over the weekend which comes from whether or not as an federal elected official if the Congresswoman was eligible to become the chair of the party. There were also questions over whether or not the Congresswoman as Chair could raise or spend soft money. She even acknowledged that she won't be able to do much with soft campaign money.

However, she got the chairmanship of the state party and as you see in the above Capitol Fax post the state Republicans had something to say about Gov. Pritzker. Pritzker backed Ald. Harris and it didn't quite work out and is viewed as yet another defeat for Pritzker.
