  •  Lipinski's district is about D+5 (2+ / 0-)

    and unlike many of the suburban heavy Chicago districts, Obama performed about average. I wouldn't be concerned at all of losing the special election as it would take very special circumstances for us to lose such a seat. Republicans hold all of two congressional offices bluer than that where they beat a Democrat, Mark Kirk's senate seat which is about as blue and saw him eke out a win over a crappy candidate in 2010, and Susan Collin's seat which is also about as blue and she holds due to immense personal popularity.

    Also, Lipinski is much more a pain in the ass than Lynch considering he aggressively advocates for anti-choice policies and I think he'd be much better to replace and placate the Vatican.
