Dear Committeemen and Republican Friends,
This election cycle's petition drive is almost over. Most campaigns are now counting, checking, and finalizing thousands of signatures that all of you gathered over the past couple months. If you haven't already, make sure to turn in last-minute sheets to your township organization or directly to the campaigns.
The State Board of Elections will start accepting nominating petitions on November 25th and the last day to turn in petitions is December 2nd.
Thank you to everyone who helped collect signatures to get our candidates on the 2014 primary ballot. The energy and dedication demonstrated by our recent petition drives show great momentum for the ongoing campaigns. Let's keep up this strong effort.
The last three months of the primary from New Years Day to Election Day will fly by, so get ready. As Republican committeemen and volunteers, you should be registering new voters, reaching out to new neighbors, and delivering absentee applications to those who usually vote that way.
The upcoming Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays are a perfect time to accomplish these important tasks. To help you in this effort, we are assembling these lists of voters and residents, which the township chairmen will distribute to you. The work you do now will make sure we are in the strongest possible position to win in November 2014.
As Americans, we have much to be thankful for. Even in these difficult times, the United States is an exceptional nation that is still the most free and prosperous on Earth. Nevertheless, we have much work ahead to preserve, and in some cases get back, our individual liberties.
From the first celebration in Plymouth Colony in 1621, through when President Lincoln officially established it nationwide in 1863, to now in 2013, Thanksgiving is a time to be grateful for our many blessings. That's why we hope that you enjoy and cherish the time that you spend with your family and friends during this upcoming holiday. Again, have a happy Thanksgiving!

Severe Storm & Tornado Relief Efforts
While the Bears game was delayed in our area, thousands of our fellow Illinoisans south of us experienced devastating tornados, damaging winds, and large hail. According to meteorologist reports, this past Sunday weather was the most intense November storm in half a century. As a community, we should step up and assist the survivors.

Daily Herald 10/16/2013 By Robert Sanchez All four GOP candidates running for governor agree that one way to fix Illinois' problems is to get a Republican in the executive mansion. On Tuesday night, they each addressed a room full of suburban Republicans to make their case for why they have what it takes to defeat Democratic Gov. Pat Quinn next year. “This is about winning, folks,” state Sen. Kirk Dillard of Hinsdale said to the crowd at DuPage County's Republican Day event in Bloomingdale....
This is a very important election. No matter what your views might be, I first hope you exercise your right to vote for the good of everyone. As we are bombarded with multiple messages and barraged with information overload, please know none of this is perfect, but we do have choices. Many of you have made up your mind already but those of you that aren’t firmly decided, I hope you will consider voting straight Republican.

As our country commemorates the 11th anniversary of the 9-11 attacks, the DuPage County Republican Party would like to pay tribute to the victims, their friends and families who still mourn their loss, and all those who rushed to aid their fellow Americans. As dark as that day is in the history of our nation, let us remember the feelings of patriotism and unity that followed the event. May we use the anniversary of those tragic events as a catalyst to promote national unity and civic pride,...
We all knew that the Chicago Democrat Machine was capable of being the most ruthless and negative campaign operation in the country. President Obama and his political advisors were all trained in Chicago, but remarks made Tuesday by Cook County Board President Democrat Toni Preckwinkle reached a new low. Preckwinkle, who used to be Obama’s Alderman in the Chicago City Council, remarked at a conference at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign that President Ronald Reagan deserves “a...
