It’s really no surprise that the editors of the Sun-Times endorsed the Dem, but here’s what they cite as one of Alexi’s major achievements for the state:
Giannoulias really shined, though, when he saved the jobs of 600 people by forcing a bank, Wells Fargo, to back off a plan to liquidate Hartmarx, a men’s clothing company in Des Plaines. By threatening to withdraw $25 billion in state deposits, Giannoulias pressured the bank to find a purchaser for Hartmarx, which it did.
Extortion! It’s the Chicago way.
