Description

Watch William J. Kelly, a candidate for national Republican committeeman, call the Illinois Republican Party 'a joke' as members of the Republican selection committee nervously look on. Kelly was outraged that the selection committee would only offer one committeeman candidate to the delegates and would deny them the right to vote for direct elections. In Illinois, Republican voters - unlike Democrat voters - do not have the right to vote for their own party leadership.
