Susan McSweeney has no chance. The Republican Party in Maine Township has fallen apart. Even the Republican Maine Township Committeeman and current GOP State Representative Rosemary Mulligan won't endorse her. The local GOP has no money. They have not done any outreach. The district has shifted so that it's less Park Ridge - but more Des Plaines and Elk Grove Village. The voters won't like a rich and wealthy Park Ridger.

Susan Sweeney is a Teaparty looney. If she ever gets asked any real questions by the press and if she gives her honest answers, she will be lucky to get 25 votes.

I would have to disagree with both of you. Susan Sweeney isn't looney. She is ambitious and spotted a great opportunity. Unfortunately, she has listened to the Tea Party leadership and has turned what could have been a good campaign into a dismal one filled with a lack of ideas and creativity and focused on negative campaigning. By going negative, Sweeney has opened herself up to voters wondering why she's so negative. Now, voters look into her background.
Her money comes from tea party groups, yet she says she isn't a tea party supporter. She claims to have the support of her party, yet local GOP leaders speak ill of her. She claims that she is a leader for family values, but won't disclose why her husband divorced her. She claims she's a community activist, but people are wondering which community she was active in. She doesn't live in the district. Her campaign staff don't come from the district. Her campaign staff has been pulling out her opponent's yard signs by the hundreds and their lack of professionalism is undesirable.
Susan Sweeney has no plan for anything, but complains about everything. She has flip-flopped on abortion. She was totally against it, but after getting labeled an extremist changed to against it unless in cases of rape, incest and the health of the mother.
Susan Sweeney attacks her opposition by blaming him for increasing everyone's water rates by 50%. Unfortunately, for her, he has no say on water rates and the rates are increased by a totally different government body. She is either lying to win or really has no clue how governments work.
Quite frankly, Susan Sweeney would get eaten alive in Springfield. She has never fought for anything and if her negative campaign is any indication on how she would fight for voters in Springfield, we would definitely lose. Sweeney is a mean spirited bridge burning extremist and we don't need that type of leadership.

so why did she quit IBM and why did her husband divorce her? she tries to identify with middle-class and single-income/single mothers but why doesn't she admit her W2s for the past 10 years are more than $200K? she doesn't speak for the middle class - her bills are paid and she hasn't worked since 1992. she's a phony and is duping anyone who believes her rants. she is not one of us, she's part of the elite.

NoSweeney.com has the reason behind why the local GOP does not support her.
