Election Day is Tuesday, and you know what that means! - the Running of the Political Cliches, brought to you by Masters of the Obvious. Today’s kick-off begins with an old favorite - “it all comes down to turnout.” Stories about the impact of weather and debates on undecided voters (spoiler: little to none) must be on the way.
Other favorites, fellow hacks and flaks?
(And reporter friends, I’m not dissing this story; it’s a good round-up. Just laughing at the headline.)
She then linked to a story with the headline: “Turnout could swing GOP race for Illinois governor.”
* Some of her comments…
Kevin Lampe: We have done everything, it is now up to the voters.
Scott Cisek: Winning comes at many levels.
Kyle Hillman: Something, something… Abraham Lincoln ….something, something
Will Caskey: Low turnout, voter apathy mark (election). Political science professor Dick Simpson said (sad panda).
Elizabeth Austin: This has been a hard-fought primary, but I think I can speak both for my team and for my opponent’s in saying that we are firmly united in our commitment to a (Democratic/Republican) win in November.
