McKeon & Assoc., a political polling firm out of Joliet, IL is reporting that the state of Illinois could be a victory for Romney/Ryan/2012 – and that means lots of other Cook County races are more likely to succeed – Rep. Joe Walsh in the 8th Congressional District, for starters. Question: is Rep Bob Dold (running as an “independent” in the new 10th District) going to endorse the national Republican ticket enthusiastically? Otherwise, no coat tails for him. The national Daily Caller blog found this story interesting enough to cover.
