Five Days to the Election

Gubernatorial Race

  • According to Larry Sabato’s latest “Crystal Ball,” Illinois is drowning in red. As of now the Governors’ race is ranked as “Leans R,” as is the Senate race, as are the races in IL-11, IL-14 and IL-17. This is very bad news in an allegedly blue state, though it makes sense. Republican Bill Brady has an easy time in the Governors’ race, given that he can run against both Pat Quinn and Rod Blagojevich. And since everyone’s sick of the negative ads, Quinn’s officially got nothing popular to run on. Brady, on the other hand, has lots of popularity with the Tea Party, to say nothing of a convenient time running on economics when all his opponent has are social issues.
