(CHICAGO)(September 21, 2009) Republican U. S. Senate candidate and insurgent “Internet Powerhouse” Andy Martin is happy to announce he is coming to Southern Illinois the weekend of October 2-3.
“We are planning a news conference, town hall meeting and meet and greet in Carbondale on October 2nd,” Martin said. “I understand we will also visit the Carbondale Downtown Art & Wine Fair.
“Saturday we will be having an additional event, very possibly in Effingham, before attending a Republican Party function.
“In 2008 I carried or nearly carried forty (40) Illinois counties and received a quarter of a million votes. I am the only Republican candidate for U. S. Senator who has actually run statewide. And although I currently live in Chicago, my original roots are in Champaign, where my mother came as a graduate student, bringing her family with her.
“When I came to Illinois as a 17 year-old, the first Illinois town I set foot in was Effingham. I can still remember that evening vividly.
“Unlike all of my opponents in both parties, I have actually been the catalyst for major highway construction downstate. I don’t just promise; I produce.
“Our first campaign swing in Southern Illinois will be guided by performance first and politics second. Between now and October 2-3 we will schedule meetings, set specific times and dates, and begin the work of bringing this great state together. ‘One Illinois’ is my slogan; one Illinois is my goal.”
The following weekend (October 9th) Martin will be in Champaign to celebrate Illini Homecoming and forty years since his graduation from the University of Illinois College of Law.
