BRAND-NEW SURVEY OUT THIS A.M.: Sun-Times/WBEZ poll shows Bailey’s backyard showing fails to cut into Pritzker’s double-digit lead
Darren Bailey didn’t simply fall off the turnip truck. The southern Illinois farmer understands politics all right to comprehend that abortion is the unwritten law in Illinois and most homeowners like it that method.
Duck and evade: So, it’s not surprising that he masterfully prevented concerns about abortion throughout a Crain’s editorial board meeting that was transmitted liveThursday “I’m pro-life,” he stated, including, “I could not alter anything if I wished to.”
That may calm some independent citizens fretted that Bailey would ditch abortion laws in the state if he were chosen guv. He understands that as long as Democrats manage the General Assembly, that will not occur. Democratic experts, on the other hand, fret that choosing a Republican to the guv’s estate would be the start of a chipping-away at such rights– or so they state.
The genuine concern is, if Bailey understands he does not have the power to end abortion rights, why does he believe he can reverse criminal justice reform laws that the General Assembly passed andGov JB Pritzker signed?
Bailey sees an opening: Where abortion is an impenetrable problem in Illinois, he states there suffice worried Democrats to support a repeal of the SAFE-T Act.
In a declaration to Playbook: The SAFE-T Act legislation “directly passed in the middle of the night, and there is a cravings for modification on this policy,” Bailey representative Joe DeBose stated in a declaration. “Darren will deal with all stakeholders to reverse it and change it.”
Democratic leaders would state when pigs fly. We’ll see what citizens state.
