ELMHURST - Immediately after Donald Trump became the Republican Party's presidential nominee, Chris Ladd resigned from his position as York Township GOP Committeeman and the Republican Party and made his reasoning public.
Tuesday, Ladd publicly blasted the state's incumbent Republican U.S. Senator Mark Kirk in Forbes.com because Ladd sees Senator Kirk as "a bitter disappointment, slipping into the timid habits of the party’s other moderates." Now, Ladd predicts, Illinois voters are about to bring him home.
Ladd's condemnation of Kirk isn't because Kirk is too liberal. In the 30 year Republican's eyes, Kirk isn't liberal enough.
