Illinois Joins Super Tuesday




Bears cut Tank Johnson

And all of have to say about the Cubs/Sox series that just ended is the Sox have cuter players.

Illinois will be part of Super Tuesday! Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich on Wednesday signed a law moving up the state's primary to Feb. 5, a move some speculate could help Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama, the state's junior senator.

As many as 25 states could hold primaries that day, and Illinois joins several delegate-rich states in settling on the early date, including California, New York and New Jersey.

"Illinois is the fifth largest state in the country. The people who live here deserve to play a bigger role in deciding who the presidential candidates will be," Blagojevich said in a written statement.


The state's primary would have been March 18. Nominees often have been decided by the time Illinois' primary is held.

    Fill in the potholes for us tomorrow.

    Sorry about the Sox! I guess there is no reason to attend the rest of the Sox's games.

    Sure, let's have an early election, only if those clowns can get the BUDGET passed ON TIME!!!!!!!! On time means APRIL, which already passed!!!!!!!!!!! Lawmakers do not expect the budget to pass before the old one expires on June 30th, so there will be a month-long temporary budget put into place.

    At least now that we are on Super Tuesday that might get more people out to the primaries.
