Â· Ron Gidwitz has a new TV ad, and it’s pretty good (wvx file). The ad touts his strong Tribune endorsement.
Â· Is a compromise brewing between the CTA and Citgo? The CTA turned down an offer of millions of dollars worth of free diesel from the Venezuelan-owned company, but there may be progress, according to CTA Tattler. “Essentially, CTA staff is suggesting that the CTA give Citgo 200,000 30-day passes — $15,000,000 worth — in exchange for $15,000,000 in cash.”
Â· OneMan comes up with a spiffy new TV ad concept.
Â· Here’s one I missed from the other day, “Driver card for illegal immigrants rejected.”
Â· 8th Congressional District Repubs split on how to handle immigration.
Â· Churchill plays up his experience in 8th District race.
Â· Internet political donations are soaring.
Â· Republican lieutenant governor candidate Sandy Wegman has a new radio ad in which she attacks not her opponents but gubernatorial candidate Judy Baar Topinka. It’s a must-listen. (Hat tip: Family Taxpayers Network)
Â· I agree. This is pretty cool.
Â· The Decatur Herald & Review’s Letters to the Editor Blog is still going well. Very well. Go check it out. More newspapers should be doing this while they continue trying to figure out how to convert their old media staff to new media. It makes sense.
Â· CTA workers authorize strike.
