Roll Call says the Schilling v. Bustos race is one of the top 10 winnable races for the GOP this year. This is their reasoning:
“…Republicans say Schilling’s background—including his ties to organized labor—make him the kind of Republican who could win this district in a good year for the GOP. But they also caution that freshman Rep. Cheri Bustos—an adept fundraiser—will be a tough Democrat to beat.”
So there you have it—according to Roll Call Schilling will have to pander to Big Labor in order to win election.
Isn’t that what Phil Hare did? Is that what Republicans do?
