  •  How? (3+ / 0-)

    It's only an R+1 district - and the collars keep going increasingly Dem further up the ticket (Obama carried it obviously, but I think even Kerry kept it single digits in 2004.  Durbin carried it, too, last time out).

    I guess everyone's got their own blog now.

      She won easily in '08 despite Obama's victory here. Harper ran a much better campaign (despite no support from DCCC) in '10, but still got clobbered. If she is at all vulnerable, it will be through redistricting.

        One of our Republican State Reps, with the help of that p.o.s. opportunist who runs Personal PAC, sent out mailers with her face and Obama's next to each other talking about what great "colleagues" they'd been.

          Scott Harper had some slick brochures. I didn't see shit from Biggert. She didn't even campaign. She didn't have to.
