It’s funny that even with the entire Blago debacle going on in Illinois and Republicans trying to paint Democrats in the state as the epitome of corruption, the people still want Democrats to lead them:
Democratic Cook County Commissioner Mike Quigley claimed victory tonight in the 5th District race to replace Rahm Emanuel in Congress.
With 94 percent of the Chicago and suburban Cook precincts reporting totals, Quigley was ahead with 70 percent of the vote over Republican Rosanna Pulido and Green Party candidate Matt Reichel.
That’s a huge margin in a time when corruption as front and center in the local news. It also says a lot about the Republicans and their hopes in 2010.
