    I know Dems were able to replace people on the ticket when they dropped out after getting the nomination, but that's a different situation than no one running in the first place...

    •  The Democratic Party still (2+ / 0-)

      has the ability to caucus people onto the ballot.  For IL-16 I don't believe they will, unless with the change in district lines someone will come forward from the Kinzinger area.  This is a very odd area.  The city of Rockford has an Independant Mayor, Republicans and Democrats in the State house and Senate and they voted for Obama in 2008.  City Alderman are split by  wards.  Where I live on the other hand, which is a mostly rural area, is just plain red all over.  We have a joke that in the town I live in Democrats can only come out at night.  We are still looking for recruits for the local elections to caucus onto the ballot.  

      The first thing lost in war is truth.
