    in the general election. If he turns out those squishy urban voters that stay home in midterms, that's a big boon to our chances. It also helps there isn't that big of a non-white pop. in Champaign/Urbana. I think Callis is the better candidate on balance, but I think they're both good.

      one of the reasons Gill did so well in the eastern part of the district is that he'd been on the ballot multiple times in that part of the district in his previous races, and Goetten (his DCCC-backed primary opponent) had virtually no presence in the eastern part of the district, either organizationally or in advertising (he didn't even visit Champaign/Urbana once during the primary, which is kind of remarkable.) Gollin won't have either the advantage of a lazy opponent or that level of name recognition.
