Two might have been the whiskey talking, but Johnson underperformed the rest of the ticket in Rock Island and Whiteside County.
I know Anderson has a moderate voting record, but this seat should be a Democrat. It’s not like Macon or Christian County it’s still a Dem stronghold.
Southern Illinois report: Rachelle Aud Crowe (D) trounced Edwardsville Mayor Hal Patton (DU, with R support). Dale Fowler (R) held off Steve Webb (D) in this increasingly Red part of the state at this level. Potential statewide/Congressional candidate Andy Manar (D) won his seat over Seth McMillan (R). 2012 Congressional nominee and 2010 Lt. Gov nominee Jason Plummer (R) FINALLY got elected to an office over Brian Stout (D).
