Question of the day

Monday, Feb 3, 2014

* My favorite headline so far about the 2014 race is about Treasurer Dan Rutherford’s highly unusual Friday press conference. The headline comes to us from the Chicago Tribune

GOP governor candidate denies unknown allegations

That about sums it up.

* The Question: What would be your own headline for the 2014 campaign to date?
