According to former Madigan staffer Rich Miller, it appears the wheels are coming off the Flawless Express:
1. DCCC ad hammering the fact that Schilling voted “to protect tax breaks that ships jobs overseas”, and other fun “turned his back” stuff.
2. Amateur Hour move that caused a Schilling ad to miss the window for lower cost tv ads—Maggie DePoorter, is that you?
3. Bustos fundraising machine set a record for 17th CD with $683K for the quarter. But at least the “grassroots” have not abandoned Schilling.
4. Ask America/CapFax poll showing Schilling down 9 points, 50-41. Gentle readers, that is Phil Hare territory.
Time for The Flawless to call in the cavalry and hope it isn’t George Armstrong Custer answering the call!
