Birkett: "I Won't Be Deterred"

   In a press release that accompanied his D-2 form, Birkett deadpanned, "If this campaign is about who has raised the most insider money, Rod Blagojevich has already won in a landslide. Fortunately, for voters, there still is a chance to learn from the very near past." Said he, "I've never been deterred by an initial lack of money," alluding to his successful 1996 primary challenge of Anthony Pecarelli, who was appointed to serve out J-Ry's unexpired term, and his 2002 race for AG.
