The Chicago Sun-Times reports:
U.S. Rep. Luis Gutierrez (D-Ill.) is helping the re-election campaign of state Rep. Maria Antonia "Toni" Berrios (D-Chicago) with a robocall in which he says Berrios is opposed by "those who want to silence Latino voices."Is Luis Gutierrez a bigger racial con man than you think?
Berrios faces a primary challenge in Tuesday's election from Will Guzzardi, who nearly unseated her two years ago and now has the backing of several prominent Latino elected officials.
"I'm outraged that there are groups working to reduce the number of Latino public servants in the state legislature at a time Latino voices should be stronger," Gutierrez says in the recorded message to voters in the Northwest Side's 39th Illinois House District. "They want us to be weak ... Stand up to those who want to silence Latino voices and support Toni Berrios."
