The leftwing is in a tizzy because Cheri Bustos only has a ProgressivePunch vote score of 44.44, which is worse than any other Illinois Democrat in Congress.
On the other hand, Bobby Schilling isn’t anything to write home about—or campaign for either with a Conservative Action score of 66/100.
So what to do? The “progressive” base isn’t excited about Bustos—in fact they hope she will lose so they can get a REAL Democrat in the 17th—not a conservadem.
On the other hand, Schilling isn’t really a conservative or a Tea Party type, so what’s to get excited about on the GOP side?
Looks like the ’14 election for the 17th CD will get down to who makes the least mistakes and the slogan for both Democrat and Republican will be:
Vote For Me: I’m More Bland Than My Opponent.
Stand for something or stand down!
