Dan in the Media
Highlights of what the Media is Saying about Dan Proft
"Mr. Proft's vision is to improve the education system, decrease taxes, promote competition and advance policies for, what he calls 'the People who play by the rules'." - Cook County Nonpartisan Examiner
"Since July, Dan Proft’s Campaign has stung the tender rumps of Illinois’s most Progressive columnists, editorial boards and mouth-organs like SEIU’s Progress Illinois and Arianna Huffington’s Chicago Huff Po – an absolute howl of sheet." - Pat Hickey, Chicago Daily Observer
"Proft says the state needs a major correction and revamping of the big-ticket systems of education, healthcare, state government operations and transportation. Not tinkering around the margins, but radical reform of how services are provided and not higher, but lower, tax rates…” - Jeff Berkowitz, Public Affairs Blog
As gubernatorial candidate Dan Proft points out, the GOP has done a poor job providing a contrasting vision to the Democratic majority. Illinois will elect a new governor next year; the campaigns are underway. We hope voters will demand to know how the candidates plan to change the corrupt status quo in Springfield; let's hope someone will provide some compelling answers. - Belleville News-Democrat
"Republican candidate for Governor Dan Proft discusses state spending and the University of Illinois." - NewsTalk 1400 WDWS-AM Champaign

You think I have sour grapes? Seriously, I love it. I was poking fun at your fascination with the fringe. Water off a duck's back to me, but, hey, okay, have at it.
The fact that this is your self-described "wheelhouse" speaks volumes.
