As if deciding who to vote for wasn’t difficult enough, the parties in Illinois have decided to raise the roof:
- The Democratic candidate for U.S. Senate is Dick Durbin. His Republican opponent is Jim Durkin.
- The current Illinois Governor is Republican George Ryan, who’s weathered too many scandals to run for reelection. Trying to replace him is Republican Jim Ryan. At least the Democrat’s name is sufficiently unique – but that’s also part of the problem. His name is Blagojevich. (That’s pronounced Bla – goy – e – vitch.)
Thanks to Ernie for the post to Project Vote Smart, a great resource. Use it if you haven’t already voted!
