Illinois Governor Pat Quinn is running for re-election and is already airing TV ads in the Chicago and some downstate markets. In the ad is a clip of Illinois Farm Bureau President Phil Nelson walking with Quinn. I was suprised to see this.
Is Illinois Farm Bureau already endorsing the Chicago Democrat? I would have a hard time believing this since this Governor has completely wiped out the only agricurultural state research funds with the elimination of funding to the Council on Food and Agricultural Research (CFAR).
Despite the fact that this Governor was part of the Blagojevich adminstration, one of the most corrupt in this nation's history and who floated a plan in the past to implement a sales tax on farm machinery and seed/chemical inputs.
Scary isn't it.
Thanks for reading!
