Falvey Touts Two New Conservative Endorsements

The 3rd Congressional Republican candidate has picked up endorsements from the Lyons Township Republicans and conservative politician Dan Proft.

The to the 3rd Congressional District seat currently held by fellow Western Springs resident Dan Lipinski is publicizing two new right-wing endorsements picked up in Falvey’s primary battle against Hometown’s Richard Grabowski.

Falvey has received primary endorsements from both conservative political figure and former GOP gubernatorial nominee Dan Proft and from the organization Lyons Township Republicans.

“Republicans can win the 3rd District this year with the right candidate, and after in-depth discussions with Jim Falvey I believe he is that candidate,” said Proft in a Falvey campaign press release. “Jim Falvey understands that the problem in Washington is not that the federal government hasn't done enough but rather that the federal government has attempted to do too much.”

Lyons Township Republicans committeeman Tony Peraica said that his group’s members had voted to support Falvey over Grabowski by a 28-11.

“Jim’s dedication to mainstream conservative values and his ability to communicate the stark difference between himself and Congressman Dan Lipinski, his general election opponent, make him our best chance at victory in November,” said Peraica, also in a Falvey campaign release.

Falvey has built his campaign around pledging to “limit the size and scope of government in order to promote individual responsibility” and frequently references his time spent as a member of former Congressman Fred Upton’s staff in the 1980s.

Grabowski has on account of his frequently having voted in Democratic primaries instead of Republican ones.

Please. The guy worked as part of a congressional staff for a Michigan congressman, and frequently votes Democratic. I haven't heard of a single conservative cause he's publically championed. Sounds like another "RINO" in the Ray Lahood mold. Isn't Dan Proft the guy who made hundreds of thousands of dollars from the crooked Cicero mayor's organization as a "spokesperson", like Dem Ray Hanania. There's no "red" or "blue" in Illinois politics. The only color that matters is "green" (as in dollars)!

It really bothers me when candidates are tripping over one another to out-conservative each other. Lipinski, to my mind, is plenty conservative. He's certainly conservative for a Democrat and has been the only member of the Illinois congressional delegation to vote against progressive measures.

"Conservative", like so many other political labels and terms, has a fluid definition. This word and "liberal" both seem to represent far more polarized viewpoints than ever. Most likely in order to pander to the far right, or far left. Lipinski is certainly more centrist than many other Democrats. Well, depending on what "centrist" means as of this writing.

Richard, Joe Stalin would be considered "conservative" in the Illinoois Dem party! LOL

Ummmm...Mr Jurcev, Rabowski is running for the 3rd Congressional District, NOT the State Senate or Rep office!
