We try to stick to policy instead of politics here, but if you want to get a quick sense of the huge debate going on among Illinois Republicans, here are two good pieces:

First, read the email from Richard Porter, the Illinois GOP’s national committeeman sent to the party’s state Central Committee. It’s reproduced in an Illinois Review column linked here.

On the other side is an opinion piece linked here by Chris Robling, a long-time Republican activist and commentator. It’s brutal.

You decide, but one thing Porter wrote is certainly true: Madigan once again “forked” his opponents the way he does so well.
