    My mom lives there and still manages to get out to vote. I will forward her this diary.
    Your profile sounds great, and I think you could really connect with voters.  Unfortunately, there are many ultra-conservative voters in the district who vote Republican reflexively.
    I'd love to see someone give Schock the boot.  (Didn't he say something about no one at Caterpiller supporting the stimulus plan?  What a jerk.)
    I'll keep visiting your website, and would be glad to make a contribution at some point down the road.
    Good luck!

      Yes, one county in the district didn't have a single candidate that wasn't a Republican in the last election.

      I believe an early start and a consistent message will have an impact on the voters here.  Our last Representative, Ray LaHood, was much more to the center than Mr. Schock.  For example, he voted for SCHIP when Mr. Schock voted against it.  He may be too conservative in his leanings for the tastes of many here, especially in these tough economic times.
