6th District roundup

Tammy Duckworth got a little bad press today.
Christine Cegelis was endorsed by Democracy for America.
Since granting its endorsement Wednesday, DFA said it has raised more than $5,500 for Cegelis from more than 200 supporters–a boost to a campaign that had the least cash on hand at the end of last year among three Democrats seeking the nomination.
That group knows how to raise money fast. And, despite what her supporters have been saying in comments here this month, Cegelis certainly needs cash.
Barack Obama will appear in a TV ad for Duckworth.
Playing one of her trump cards, congressional hopeful Tammy Duckworth began airing a television commercial featuring U.S. Sen. Barack Obama on Thursday — marking the freshman Democratic senator’s first appearance in a TV ad for another candidate.
And Bill Baar wants the Democratic Party to rebuke Lindy Scott.
Apparently, I forgot to post that the Machinist’s union has endorsed Cegelis, a former member.
