  •  Don't count IL 14 out... (2+ / 0-)

    John Laesch is running against Dennis Hastert here in the 14th, and he is gaining a lot of grassroots support. He has raised more funds than any opponent has been able to raise in about a decade. There is a group forming in the district: Republicans for Laesch. He is a progressive democrat, but still has a lot of cross-over appeal as a farmer, carpenter, Christian, and veteran. Hastert has also been doing something that no one can remember him doing in recent races: campaigning in the district. He has been staging photo-ops in the district, and he even made a point to put out yard signs during the primaries, even though he was uncontested.

    Don't count us out. We've got more than a good chance.
