Political Vet to State GOP: Get it Together

Illinois Republicans have an uphill climb, and the former chairwoman doesn’t have good memories of her time there.  Illinois Comptroller Judy Barr-Topinka says Republicans have to do better at working with everyone if they want to win more elections in 2014 and had better get on board the idea that same-sex marriage is the wave of the future.

” I don’t understand the problem here. People are people and these people are Illinoisians who are due the same rights as everybody” Topinka says.

Topinka will seek a second term as state comptroller after her run as treasurer and unsuccessful bid for governor in 2006.
