It’s never a good thing for a candidate when you’re running away from your party. the problem with politicians who go the facial hair route is that you look different in pictures if you change and some voters could get confused-he uses shots in this-at the :19 mark- where he has a full beard and some not.
It’s a federal or statewide level ad on the positive side.
Forby doesn’t speak for himself because his grasp of the english language is just not there. I am not sure where he was brought up but when he speaks it is painful. Gov. Quinn will probably stay North of Springfield for the rest of his term and Forby will talk bad about him until he is reelectd and then all will be well.
The lack of any GOP money until 1 recent mailing for Forby’s opponent Mark Minor speaks very loudly. It tells me the party isn’t ‘all in’ on their own candidate. This is particularly deafening silence in light of the million plus Forby and Burzynski each spent in 2008 for this seat.
If anything the data tells me that Forby gets a pass on this round and the GOP will try to recruit a better candidate next time.
I think all dems would be smart to dump on Quinn but he is up against more than that he is up against a region that is way way out of step with the state it is in. I think the rest of the posts showing and Illinos to not like the NRA though I am sure it is very popular in the southern tip.
Illinois is one of the few states that would ban hunting(Gallup Poll)
