Illinois Conservative US Senate Candidates Forum

To all my fellow RedStaters in Illinois. I received the following announcement from my local county board member and thought this is a good opportunity to meet candidates who are NOT Mark Kirk. I plan to attend and will be wearing my RedState name tag from the gathering (if management here doesn’t object).

If any of you can make it, please stop me an say HI!

Conservative US Senate Candidates Forum

“This is one of the most important meetings of the Republican Party for US Senate Candidates. Our party needs to come together and support the most highly qualified conservative candidates to represent Illinois in the February 2, 2010 Primary Election.

Let’s help return the Illinois Republican Party to the Party of Reagan/Fitzgerald! 2010 is the year to return to Traditional Principles, Strong Values, Smaller Government, and Common Sense Ideas to protect Freedom and to keep our nation sovereign.”

Hosted by County Chairmen of the Illinois Republican Party.
County Host: John W. Parrott, Jr. (309) 663-6323

Since they have a Q&A session, I would like suggestions for good questions to ask. I assume they’ll address Cap & Trade and Obama Care in their allocated address time. What else should I ask about?
