Jim Patrick, a Williamson County precinct committeeman, helped organize the effort to bring Keyes to Southern Illinois.It really says something about the Republicans' choice for Senate that, at its core, their most glowing praise is: "Our candidate is quite a good talker."
"We are very excited and happy about bringing Alan Keyes to Southern Illinois. He is a man of character," Patrick said. "He's not afraid to speak his mind and he does it very fluently. I don't think there is a more eloquent speaker than him. I don't know of anybody on the state or national level that can speak more eloquently than Alan Keyes." [emphasis added]
That is sure to help elect GOP candidates further down the ballot.
