Question of the day
Monday, Oct 29, 2012
* Despite the fact that pretty much every poll I’ve seen for weeks has had the Judy Biggert vs. Bill Foster race as a dead heat, the campaign hasn’t really generated the same intensity of media coverage that the Joe Walsh vs. Tammy Duckworth or Bob Dold vs. Brad Schneider campaigns.
I have to figure that since both candidates are pretty vanilla and moderate, they’re just not “good TV” like Walsh/Duckworth. And Dold and Schneider look positively charismatic when compared to Biggert and Foster. Also, Biggert has until recently kept a pretty low media profile, unlike the other candidates, which tends to tamp down coverage as a whole.
So, let’s put on our thinking caps, shall we?
* The Question: What could Judy Biggert and Bill Foster do in the final week to gin up coverage of their campaign?
Snark is highly encouraged, of course. Have fun, but keep it clean, please.
Also, sorry that I posted this so late in the day.
