Governor Topinka or Governor LaHood? What does everyone want?  Smiley

I remember seeing some highlights from Rod's 2002 debates. I really dislike him. Hopefully, he gets taken down.

As interesting as this race sounds, I still don't think it even comes close to the potential disaster looming for the GOP here in Ohio. I can't quite put my finger on it but I'm hereing two different stories: Democrats are saying don't worry about Blagojevich while Republicans are unearthing all kinds of muck and poll data.

Even if Blagojevich goes down, the Illinois state legislature is still going to be Democratic. I supoose I'd have to say based on what I'm reading and what I've heard(my brother lives in Chicago)there's a 51-49 chance he keeps his job with virtually no chance of the state house changing hands. It's about 70-30 likely the Democrats get into the state capitol here in Ohio, but 70-30 likely the GOP keeps the state, although I think they will lose some seats.

The GOP is to Illinois is the Democratic party is to Ohio...

Does anyone know if Jim Edgar is even considering?

And I really think his odds are a lot better.

He may not be liked, but republicans certainly won't nominate anyone worth liking.

I heard that Jimmy is actually considering a run for Gov.

I really hope he does so I don't feel like I was forced to vote for Roddy.

It's been rumored that Topinka hadn't announced yet waiting for a potential announment from Edgar. The Chicago Sun Times reports similar talk yesterday from LaHood.

Will Keyes run, or did he move back to MD already?
