Bold progressive Ilya Sheyman made headlines nationwide today when Politico announced that the latest Public Policy Polling (PPP) poll shows "Dems want a progressive."

The Chicago Sun-Times and Progress Illinois also covered the big news. Neil Sroka, Press Secretary for the Progressive Change Campaign Committee (and IL-10 native), told Progress Illinois:

"Democratic primary voters overwhelmingly want a bold progressive candidate who will fight for Wall Street accountability and government investment in jobs -- not a conservative Democrat like Brad Schneider. With his people-powered campaign and record as a bold progressive fighter, Ilya Sheyman is winning this race and his lead will only widen as more people are inspired by his message."

According to today's PPP poll, 64% of voters want a progressive, compared to a mere 25% who wanted a moderate candidate. The people of Illinois have spoken: the majority of IL-10 voters want a bold progressive like Ilya Sheyman!

The poll results clearly show that people in the district want a candidate like Ilya who will fight to protect Medicare, create good jobs and hold Wall Street and big corporations accountable. But Ilya is taking on a field of candidates who have a lot of money behind them, and he needs all the grassroots support he can get to help him win!

Ilya is one of the nation's top progressive rising stars of 2012, and he's running a strong, smart campaign...and he's winning! But the race is close, and he still needs help. Can you help?

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
