It's on baby!
The State of Illinois is reporting minutes ago that IL Gov. Rod Blagojevich has named February 5th as the date for the special primary for IL-14th Denny-vacated seat,and March 8 for the special general to finish the term Hastert wouldn't.
Months before the November election, we'll have an election that will show the nation how far people powered, grass roots, net roots politics has come.
Ozzie here, a volunteer for John-
This is news we've all been waiting for.
It's quite a race in the 14th, a (formerly) really red district that, from what I'm seeing, is thoroughly fed up with anything that smells of 6 years of the Bush/Hastert regime, and anyone who emulates it.
John's got a few primary opponents, one even an attendee of Rahm's Summer camp, but in the 14th, John's the man, he's the one progressive people look to for leadership.
On February 5 there will be two primaries in IL-14, and you can vote for John Laesch twice!
And again in March!
And again in November!
Hell, Chicago's not that far away, just keep voting for him!
