Chicago, IL, February 10, 2012 – Former White House senior advisor and Fox News contributor Dick Morris is taking a stand in Chicago. In a mass email to supporters sent out Thursday, Morris said the Chicago Republican Party is “nothing short of pathetic.” According to Morris, “It [the Chicago Republican Party] has not been an effective force of opposition for many decades and has gotten so used to losing that it cannot pull itself out of the rut into which it has fallen.”
In order to retool the Chicago GOP leadership, Morris has endorsed conservative firebrand William J. Kelly for Chairman of the Chicago Republican Party and 42nd ward committeeman. Kelly is opposing the Chicago Republican Party’s current chairman in the upcoming March 20th primary.
“I am pleased and proud to endorse William J. Kelly for the post of Chicago Republican Chairman and Republican committeeman,” said Morris in his letter. “Kelly is a fighter who uses tactics that are unconventional, often brilliant, and frequently humorous to drive home his points….His attacks against the [Emanuel] Administration and Democratic programs would attract national attention and put the Chicago Republican Party on the map again.”
To that end, Morris will be headlining a Chicago St. Patrick’s Day fundraiser for William J. Kelly on March 10th at Chicago’s Signature Room on the 95th Floor of the John Hancock Building. The best-selling author will hold a private VIP reception and deliver a speech to attendees at the Signature Room on the 95th.

Morris says there is new hope for Chicago Republicans and points to the 18-year reign of Republican Mayors in New York. “If they can upend their invested
Democratic machine, we can too,” he said.
