So weird. Kirk pulls ahead IL Senate race by 9,000 votes out of over a million with 77% reporting. This is for the 6 year term.
There is dropoff in the lame duck session vote. Yes, you get to vote twice this year but some didn't take advantage. Giannoulias leads there but the vote is slightly slower coming in.
More. Tribune numbers here. Updating.
UPDATE: OK, Kirk now leading lame duck term too. Brady catching up with Quinn in governor race.
