It appears we have somebody to thank for saving Columbus Day in Illinois — Rep. Tony DeLuca of Chicago Heights. See the article linked here. Nice to see anybody standing up to the madness of political correctness, but especially a Dem.

Don’t mess with guys named DeLuca from Chicago Heights. I already knew that from going to high school there. We had our own Tony DeLuca then from an earlier generation. Toughest guy in the Heights, which said something. Don’t know if they are related.

I’ve given this Rep. DeLuca a hard time on some financial bills he has sponsored, but I sure admire him for this.
