    I live in the heart of the Fox Valley and I receive large flyers from the Foster campaign weekly via the mail. Obviously he is spending some of his millions.

    Scientist or no Foster is clueless to many progressive causes but money talks.

    I'd like to see more name recognition for John in the eastern Kane area. Hopefully someone can clue me in.

    Go John!!!

      It's The Strategy Group strategy.  Here's a comment from Lynn Sweet's blog from March, 2006


      Sunlight is always a good thing, and your article helps. I wish you had had a chance to mention some of the local (and locally broadcast) forums Duckworth has chosen to miss (often because she was attending big $ fundraisers arranged by her new Washington friends) including:

      -Jeff Berkowitz show Jan 8 (did not return calls)
      -Elk Grove Village Democratic Club Forum Jan 19
      IVIIPO Endorsement session in Des Plaines Jan. 24 (did not answer questionnaire, did not send a representative)
      -DuPage United Forum January 26
      -League of Women Voters Forum February 7
      IndoAmerican Democratic Organization Feb 12
      -Cable Access Candidates Forum Feb 16 (did not return calls)
      -Glenbard West Young Democrats Club Feb 22 (did not return calls)
      -Laura Flanders Show Feb 26 (did not return calls)
      -Winfield Democrats Feb 27

      Duckworth HAS been showing up on glossy mail pieces, however: at least 4 in the last 3 weeks. As one resident of the district put it: "Cegelis shows up everywhere; Duckworth shows up in my mailbox."

      I added the emphasis.  Here's the link to the Sweet piece:
