McHenry County Democratic Rally Draws Small Turnout
March organizer Patrick Murfin was disappointed but not discouraged. "We average about 43 percent (in McHenry County voting). We've even had better, depending on the candidate. I think we'll do well this year."
Fourteenth District Congressman candidate Dennis Anderson was the headliner at the rally. He's been complaining this week that incumbent Randy Hultgren's been ducking debates with him charging he's skipped four candidate forums and left a fifth before the audience could ask any questions.
Other candidates at the rally included County Board candidates Paula Yensen from LITH, District 5, and Scott Summers from Harvard, District 6.
