The Race for The Sixth District of Illinois Pt. 3

Illinois Sixth District.
The Fightin' Sixth!

Friday was the first debate between Illinois 6Th District Congressional candidates Dem. Tammy Duckworth and Rep. Peter Roska. The debate is available on WBBM 780's "At Issue." The chief topics debated are immigration, taxes, Iraq and stem cell research. Duckworth has been getting alot of heat for not being open and available to news outlets as well as voters. That may or may not be true. You be the judge, I think she holds her own nicely.

Also, Bridget in the Sixth, Wurfwhile and Soapbox/Chicago are doing great work getting info out on the various elections this year in Illinois.

Yeah, it's hard to attack a military officer who was maimed in Iraq on her stance on ther war, isn't it?

I was reading recently that Dupage's percentage of Democratic voters is steadily rising. Very interesting.

What are the odds on Duckworth winning? I suspect they're still rather slim, although she'll likely do better than any Democrat ever has in that district.

I have been reading a few letters to the editor in the Elmhurst Press and Independent that express disatisfaction with the G.O.P. I still think the biggest problem is the Dems themselves. I wish they would put out more plans, like a plan for immigration, a plan for Iraq, a plan to deal with terrorism. Maybe, the only poll that counts is in November.
