Those of us who live in Chicago have been following this story (linked) with grave concern. Today's news tells us that the situation at Broadway bank is WORSE than we thought just last week. I urge Illinois Dems to make themselves familiar with this story before voting tomorrow. http://www.chicagobusiness.com/...
Those of us who live in Chicago have been following this story (linked) with grave concern. Today's news tells us that the situation at Broadway bank is WORSE than we thought just last week. If we Democrats nominate Alexi, we are going to get killed this fall in an election against Mark Kirk. The swing voters that decide elections in Illinois are not going to want to vote for a guy with a thin professional resume who has a family bank that needs to be bailed out after he took millions in dividends.
Fair or not, it sounds similar to the AIG execs taking the large bonuses that caused the uproar last summer. Lets be real....do we think any of them would make good Senate candidates? Can you IMAGINE the ads that Mark Kirk is going to run? Wake up, Illinois Dems! Lets not commit political suicide.
The latest polls I saw on Polling.com has Alexi falling and David Hoffman on the rise. That's a good thing. I think Hoffman is going to be a star for anyone who has progressive values. Don't believe the Alexi "he's really a Republican" attacks...I mean, what else are they going to say at this point, with EVERY major newspaper across the state saying Hoffman is the better choice?
I urge you to take a look at his web site and consider voting for Hoffman when you go to the polls tomorrow.
