Not to be rude, but where's this Abboud dude?

It's been a couple of months now since Barrington Hills Mayor Bob Abboud announced his candidacy for the Democratic nomination to challenge incumbent Republican Don Manzullo in the race for Congress in the 16th District of Illinois.

Since then, however, Abboud has been silent. Oh, he's got a Web site (such as it is), but there's nothing new on it. All manner of issues and events have arisen in recent weeks, and we hear nothing about them from this guy.

If Abboud is going to have a chance to win in this traditionally Republican district, he'd better get off his tractor pretty soon. (At least his dog seems eager for action.)

He's working putting a professional campaign staff together. He's been to Rockford quite a bit actually. Too early for the press to get excited about this. Got to get the signatures to get on the ballot first.

Glad to hear it. Thanks.

He could still be putting out some media communications about such things as Manzullo's vote against the bill for child health care. It will be financed by an increase in the cigarette tax, so it can't be labeled as something which will increase are already huge deficit. Oh, I forgot, health care for poor kids is 'socialized' medicine. Sorry kids.
