Streator candidate sees similarities between himself and Donald Trump

Posted by wlpo on May 4, 2016

Could union truck driver Jerry Long of Streator do locally what Donald Trump is doing nationally?

The Republican candidate for State Representative put out a statement soon after Trump’s win in Indiana saying while he backed Ted Cruz, he will support the GOP nominee. He then went on to say Trump has done so well because “so many people are sick and tired of political establishment”.

Like Trump, Long says he is running against a political insider in Democratic State Rep. Andy Skoog. Long says Skoog has “undeniable ties to the Mautino-Madigan Machine”.
