Kaifesh, Goel: Duckworth rematch no rerun
Republican hopefuls Manju Goel and Larry Kaifesh say there’s reason to believe a November showdown with 8th District Democratic incumbent Tammy Duckworth could have a different outcome than Walsh’s in 2012.
The public’s impression of the Affordable Care Act — Obamacare — isn’t the only example, but probably the only one needed to demonstrate that voters will be thinking differently in 2014 than they did in 2012, said Kaifesh, 46, of Carpentersville.
Two years ago, even legislators were trying to get their arms around the bill, Kaifesh said. But he believes the public is now feeling the effects of the act through the loss or higher cost of insurance policies as well as a loss of jobs.
