GOPUSA ILLINOIS Daily Clips - April 7, 2008

CHICAGO SUN-TIMES
-- 4X8-INCH PHOTO OF OBERWEIS ON PAGE 6: DIERSEN HEADLINE: Chicago Sun-Times alleges that "state Republican officials" are "persuading" Oberweis to withdraw. But beyond outrageously, the Chicago Sun-Times does not identify who those "officials" are or who those "officials" would want to fill the vacancy with. Who are these "officials" and what are their motives?
http://www.suntimes.com/news/elections/880908,CST-NWS-cong07.article
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Next door, in the 14th Congressional District, state Republican officials have had no luck persuading Republican nominee Jim Oberweis to step aside for a less controversial nominee. Last month, Democrat Bill Foster beat Oberweis 53 percent to 47 percent in the traditionally Republican district's race to fill out the 10 months remaining in former Speaker Denny Hastert's term. Foster and Oberweis are set to have a rematch in November.)

SOUTHTOWN STAR
-- Muslim congressman "Ellison went on to say if more people knew of what Islam had to teach, the controversy created by statements from presidential candidate Barack Obama's former pastor, the Rev. Jeremiah Wright, might not have occurred. Ellison took questions from the audience. At one point, he was asked whether Republican presidential candidate John McCain should be forgiven for saying he would never vote for a Muslim presidential candidate. He reiterated Islam's teaching of mercy. 'That's what it means to be Muslim. To want the best for everyone, even if they want to chop you up into little pieces,' he said."

WASHINGTON POST
-- DIERSEN HEADLINE: According to Democrat Party controlled Reuters, a) the Republican Party has "focused on getting conservatives to the polls," b) the Republican Party has "often ignored" other voters, and c) McCain will focus on winning over black, Hispanic, independent, and young voters. Beyond tragically, for decades, to win over black, Hispanic, independent, and young voters, many anti-conservative Republican candidates, elected officials, and party leaders in Illinois have done little more than demonize conservatives and demonize conservative principles
