A Bid for Congress

One of my closest friends, John Fritchey, was unfortunately unsuccessful in his bid for the 5th congressional seat in Chicago tonight. This was a highly contested race and John ended up taking second (12 candidates ran) behind Mike Quigley, who had the endorsement of The Sun Times and Tribune. John ran a great race and I'm super proud of him, as are many folks in Chicago. He may not have won this battle but his political prospects are very bright, and I am sure we'll all be hearing more from him in the future. He is a great politician and an even better person and while I am certain he is disappointed, he can hold his head high knowing that he ran a great race while not compromising his integrity.

Onward and upward, Homie.
