The self-proclaimed "southsider, comedian-entrepreneur/pioneer" and "proud capitalist" is campaigning against excessive government spending, political favoring, voter fraud and increasing violence in the Lincoln Park area (he was a victim of a violent mugging this summer that went unsolved). His "3Rs" include: Reforming the state of Illinois; Rebuilding the Republican Party in the process; and Redeeming Illinois from its present state of corruption.
After losing to Rep. Bobby Rush in 1994, Kelly went on to start REV Productions which gave him a voice in the media. The outspoken conservative now hosts "Sportsaholic," a boldly-opinionated sports show, helps manage the Emmy award-winning Upscale TV as well as the Rebuild Illinois Web site.
