  •  UPDATE LOCAL NEWS COVERAGE (0+ / 0-)

    This article from the Southern Illinoisan was someone who apparently didnt like Durbin and others helping Ms Simon.  Its a very red area down here around Carbondale, IL.  Unfortunate, but true.

    as the cleansing light of oversight floods the room, the fearful roaches scatter.

    •  I don't think Carbondale is red.... (0+ / 0-)

      I think Carbondale itself is pretty darned blue actually...and frankly, her opponent Brad Cole's connection to former Governor Ryan (who was found guilty and sentenced to multiple years in prison which is basically tantamount to a life sentence) pretty much put the kibosh on anyone from the Republican state party coming down to help him out.

      Frankly, I think their "golden boy" is jealous that Simon has politicians that can come to endorse her that ARE NOT corrupt criminals.
