Former Illinois Senate candidate Stefanie Linares, who is a lawyer, poses for a photo in ChicagoBy Andy Sullivan WASHINGTON (Reuters) – When Republican Stefanie Linares ran for office in the deeply Democratic city of Chicago last year, she knew that her hard work wasn’t likely to end in victory. As she knocked on doors and handed out leaflets in affluent North Side neighborhoods, Linares acted as an ambassador for the Republican ticket as a whole, arguing that the Democrats who controlled state government were responsible for Illinois’s fiscal woes. The 31-year-old Hispanic lawyer lost her bid for the Illinois state Senate by a whopping margin. Now Republicans are looking for a few more good losers like Linares as the 2016 presidential campaign gets under way.
