    Is it just because he was running against Tammy Duckworth?

    •  I have absolutly nothing against Raja. (0+ / 0-)

      I would hope he has a future, but he just went through a 2nd primary defeat, which I think is a big deal. He's yet to win elected office. I think he should aim lower at this point.

      Although, now that I think about, he lost to a man, who went on to loss by 12 points. Granted it was against Judy Baar Topinka, but still that's also not the best thing for him. I've never seen Raja speaking or interacting with people. I've always taken other people's word that he was a rising star. I guess I should check him out for myself.

        unreasonably harsh against him. The only thing I could fault him for was the boneheaded move continuing to run for IL-08 when everyone was backing Duckworth. He could have easily dropped down to Senate.

        He certainly isn't a perennial gadfly, he's the former Deputy State Treasurer.

          and primaried incumbent State Sen. Michael Noland?

          Considering Noland's actual primary challenger got destroyed by the same margin as Raja, I don't think that would have ended differently.
