    ...but after the way Sensata kicked their people to the curb in Freeport (and Romney made money on it, natch), I can't see anyone in IL-17 voting Republican. They kicked out Manzullo for Bustos.

      That district has the south side of Peoria and the west side of Rockford plus the QC.  There is is farmland in between but that district is blue collar and has a lot of minorities.   A Dem loser in this district is a flawed candidate.
