Romney Illinois Attacks Santorum Volunteer Delegates

January 14, 2012

Just minutes before the deadline for challenging petitions closed attorneys for the Romney campaign came into the Chicago office of the State Board of Elections to try and remove the Delegate teams from Congressional Districts 1,2,3,10,11,12,15,16,17,18 from the ballot. In the final minutes in Springfield a Gingrich supporter from Robinson filed against the Santorum statewide petition and the 15th District Delegates. Following the Reagan Doctrine of “Trust, but verify” I had prepared to file challenges to the petitions of Romney, Paul, Perry and Gingrich. I did this as a defense in case a campaign had decided to break, unannounced, the standing policy of never filing delegate challenges. I filed these at 4:46 PM. I plan to withdraw the Paul and Perry challenges Monday since their representatives decided to let the people decide. I will wait to hear from leadership of the Romney and Gingrich camps this weekend.
