This morning's Sun-Times included a gracious endorsement of
Democrat Pat Quinn for governor. Pointing to his advocacy for an income
tax hike and the spending cuts he implemented during the past two
years, the editorial says Quinn can "claim considerable accomplishments
and has shown real courage." The paper wasn't so kind to the Republican
nominee, Bill Brady.
Democratic U.S. Rep Debbie Halvorson received the endorsement
of the National Rifle Association today. The gun group cited the
congresswoman's vote in favor of an amendment that would allow those
with a permit to carry concealed weapons in national parks.
