It may be close but Dan Seals is a laughable candidate. On his 3rd try he still doesn't live in the district. And he quit his job ages ago to run the first time--what does this guy know about job creation? He wants more federal bailouts. That's a burden on small business, which has taken the brunt of this Obama recession--that's why it's a jobless recovery.
Seals joins failed mob banker and Dem Senate candidate Alexi Giannoulias in ducking a forum on Israel both Dems had previously committed to.
This does not inspire confidence he'll be responsive to constituents. It'll be the Melissa Bean town meeting complete with bouncer.
Illinois is waking up. Robert Dold--let's get to work.
