The straw poll was among 60 that attended the group's first Judges Breakfast for Republican election judges. Candidates in attendance included Maria Rodriquez, running with Bill Brady for Governor, Doug Truax and Jim Oberweis for U.S. Senate, U.S. Congress candidates Dr. Eric Wallace and Diane Harris and Herb Schuman, vying for Metropolitan Water Reclamation District.
All campaigns were invited to attend and address the judges. This straw poll is not meant to be considered an endorsement of any candidate by the Rich Township Republican’s and no endorsement has been made by the organization for the 2014 Republican Primary.
"We are greatly appreciative of everyone who attended the breakfast and especially for those that serve our township as a Republican election judge," said Israel J. Smith, Rich Township Republican Committeeman.
