Illinois results.

IL-02 is coming in quickly; Jackson, unsurprisingly, is winning this one going away. Early results in IL-10 are a tie between Schneider and Sheyman. Nothing to report elsewhere.

Pretty strong lead for Tammy Duckworth in IL-08, albeit with only Cook reporting so far.

Half the precincts in for IL-10; Schenider leads Sheyman 46-40.

Really don't see how Schneider loses now.  Should tell you not to trust paid polls, as always.

Kinzinger/Manzullo looks like it will be comically polarized, unsurprisingly. Kinzinger is getting 79% in LaSalle.

Actually, doesn't look too good for Manzullo. He's only leading in three counties, and he'll need a big margin in Winnebago to pull off a win.

I was trying to remember why Sheyman's name sounded familiar, so I went back to the Ill. congressional jujitsu thread. Krazen seemed to be pulling for him to win.

As AP has called it: Kinzinger has bonked Manzullo, 56-44.

To be blunt, I won't miss him very much.

Tammy Duckworth also easily won the primary to face Joe Walsh.

Kinzinger was one of the few Republicans to be more anti-Gaddafi than anti-Obama, so I supported him. Good.

I'm surprised Kinzinger won.

Didn't know he was more palatable than Manzullo, but in that case, good.

So, Maryland. The only real action is in the Democratic primary in MD-06, where wealthy dude John Delaney is looking like he might upset the establishment candidate, State Sen. Rob Garagiola. Delaney has raised over $2 million (although more than half is from his pocket), while Garagiola has only raised about a quarter of that -- Garagiola's finances are so bad that he "decided" not to go on the air in the closing days of the primary. On the other side of the fence, there are a number of Republican challengers to Roscoe Bartlett, but none of them look particularly serious.

Also, Ben Cardin has a challenge from douchebag State Sen. Anthony Muse, but Muse has yet to file any fundraising reports, so I'm assuming Cardin's not worried.

Somewhat unusual type of Wealthy Dude candidate, though. http://www.delaney2012.com/about-john/ (Also, teenage daughters are endorsed.)

Also: Lol at this

Quote
Newest Attack Doesn’t Stretch the Truth, It Breaks It

The attacks coming out of Rob Garagiola’s campaign have finally crossed the line from desperate to outright bizarre. According to a new attack out from Garagiola, the fact that John Delaney sold real estate in Washington D.C. to the nation of Bahrain nearly a decade ago makes him responsible for the country’s political unrest, and that “Delaney’s relationship with the Kingdom of Bahrain should lead to questions over foreign tax shelters, financial holdings, and offshore vehicles to evade taxes.” [snip]

Over the last three weeks the attacks out the Garagiola campaign have gotten increasingly outlandish. [snip]
Charge: “The truth about [Delaney’s] record of financially supporting Republicans like…Bob Ehrlich”

Fact:  As the Maryland Reporter noted, “After the video came out, the Delaney camp fired back with a statement calling out Garagiola’s camp for incorrectly accusing Delaney of contributing to former Gov. Bob Ehrlich, a Republican. The contributions were made by other donors named John Delaney. [snip]

Neither candidate looks all that bad or all that great, but I tend to implicitly trust Donna Edwards on Maryland, so... Cheesy

Edwards endorsed Delaney because she's pissed about Garagiola's role in redistricting.

Delaney has also released an internal: John Delaney 49, Rob Garagiola 23, Milad Pooran 10

I tend to think that won't be far wrong.

Yeah, so Delaney is winning MD-06 easily. Also, Anthony Muse isn't even breaking 20%.

See, we have similar instincts.

As someone who likes the Maryland map and thinks Edwards is being pretty whiny over still having a safe D seat and isn't too fond of some rich guy buying the primary, I'm a little mixed here. But if he can hold the seat, great, we have it, plus that Garagiola attack ad sounds inane beyond words so...

I'm actually rather shocked Bartlett is even running again, he's so old as it is that no one would be surprised if he retired even without the redistricting situation.

He won his primary with just 43% fwiw.

Here's a map of the MD-Sen Republican primary.



I guess nobody had any idea who the hell they were voting for.
