Chicago GOP hosts unprecedented recruiting event

CHICAGO (AP) — The Chicago Republican party is launching a candidate recruitment program that includes an advertising campaign and what’s being described as an “American Idol-style” vetting process.

Party officials are billing it as “unprecedented” because of the open process. They’re set to announce details Tuesday.

The goal is to have more Republican candidates in the General Assembly that live in the city. The Chicago GOP says they’d like to give voters more options in the Democratic stronghold. The party estimates that there are about 150,000 Chicagoans who vote Republican in a General Election.

House Republican Leader Tom Cross and state Republican Sen. Matt Murphy of Palatine are expected to attend the launching of the effort.  

Those who advance in the process will get backing from the party in 2014.
