U. S. SENATE CANDIDATE ANDY MARTIN SET TO “EVISCERATE” STEVE SAUERBERG AT BOLINGBROKE BAPTIST FORUM TUESDAY
(CHICAGO)(January 21, 2008) U. S. Senate candidate Andy Martin announced Monday that as Super Tuesday approaches and the primary campaign reaches a crescendo, he is preparing to “eviscerate” Steve Sauerberg at a Bolingbroke Baptist forum on Tuesday the 22nd.
“During this campaign I have had to teach my opponents constitutional law, procedural law, and now Politics 101,” Martin says. “Steve Sauerberg goes around the state attacking Dick Durbin. Dick Durbin is not the issue in the Republican primary. There are two issues in the Republican primary.
The first issue is which of the Republican candidates is the best qualified by experience, credibility and media presence to be the strongest opponent for Mr. Durbin? The second issue is, are Illinois Republicans going to allow the billionaire McKenna family to buy and own the Republican Party when the McKenna family ‘Combine’ is giving tens of thousands of dollars to the Daley machine? Not surprisingly, the Daley Machine tried to rig Chicago’s voting machines in Sauerberg’s favor. It goes against the grain of democracy for Daley Machine supporters such as the McKenna family to pick Republican candidates.
“I have been warning Republicans since last May that Steve Sauerberg was a rookie and an incompetent candidate. Sauerberg got tongue-tied in a recent interview with Fran Eaton of the Illinois review: http://illinoisreview.typepad.com/illinoisreview/2008/01/sauerbergs-posi.html
“If Sauerberg can’t take the pressure from Fran Eaton, how is Sauerberg going to stand up to Dick Durbin, the Democrats’ best debater, when the TV studio lights are on and the pressure is immense? Obviously, Sauerberg blundered into politics. He thought he could buy a senate nomination the same way wealthy doctors purchase a Mercedes. Life’s not like that. Sauerberg is the same candidate who proposed a ‘health reform’ plan to make doctors richer by taking away jury trials only in medical malpractice lawsuits, and failed to realize that constitutional amendments were required to deny Americans a jury trial. Steve should have stayed in medicine.
“It is time for reality to intrude in ‘Sauerberg’s World,’ and Tuesday, in Bolingbroke, I will give Mr. Sauerberg a dose of political reality. I hope he’s wearing his trademark stethoscope; he may need to use it on himself,” Martin chortled in announcing the candidate confrontation. “Mr. Sauerberg should step down, today, before he embarrasses himself any further.”
Advance copies of Martin’s speech will be available early Tuesday upon request; copies will also be available in Bolingbroke.
