Turner for Illinois
Win, of course. That is what elections are about. But if you don’t win, make sure to lose on your own best terms.
Deputy Majority Leader Art Turner, a 30-year veteran legislator, was virtually unknown when he entered the democratic primary for Lt. Gov of Illinois against a millionaire who spent more than $2m. With less than 5% of his opponents’ resources, he ran a campaign for the long term.
Art Turner is now a household name, lauded for his honesty and integrity, a recognized thought-leader and is positioned to be a significant influencer of future elections for years to come. It is an important example of how losing can actually be a winning move.
