Political Shootout Sunday: Jim Leahy vs. Jill Zwick.
Next Sunday on WLS-AM (890) Jim Leahy, executive director of the Republican Assembly of Illinois and an expert on conservative grassroots will appear along with Jill Zwick, an independent who has been an activist in both the Republican and Democratic parties. She was a Republican state representative in the same district Democrat Jack Franks now serves in McHenry county (but they didnt run against each other; they served at different times). A born independent in that she is a critic of both parties and a supporter of certain candidates in both, she offers an unique perspective on state and local politics. Jim, whom I call a spiritual son, began as a Democrat, is an ex-Marine, become a conservative after being inspired by Ronald Reagan and is a union member. Hes known for his candid and blunt, no-holds-barred views. Tune in for a lot of fun!
