When a young community organizer named Barack Obama ran against entrenched Chicago politician Bobby Rush, he got his ass handed to him.
It’s important to note that he hasn’t lost since.
Also, let’s point out that when he ran for Senate, the IL GOP basically shat the bed and ran one of the most embarrassing campaigns the state has ever seen. So how about a little credit for the laughable attempts of Illinois Republicans. They barely even tried.
Run, Sarah, Run.
