Campaign’s “crux” debated
Friday, Sep 29, 2006
The “crux” of the comptroller’s race isn’t really delinquent Medicaid payments, but whether Carole Pankau can even make voters notice that she’s on the ballot. But, this is still an informative piece.
Illinois owes $1.4 billion in delinquent Medicaid payments â€” and just who should take the blame for it may be the crux of the state comptrollerâ€™s race.
Hynes’ campaign fired back that Pankau has been silent about the issue for years, so it’s nice to see the two finally engaging on something. Pankau started off this race essentially endorsing Hynes.
I’m most curious to see if this campaign can generate more than a handful of comments on an otherwise slow Friday.
