Boring! September 19, 2006

Posted by j-dub in Local, Politics.

That’s how I’d describe this election season in Champaign County.  Don’t get me wrong, I’m still interested, I just think there aren’t a whole lot of races in doubt.  I think we have too many uncontested races, and too many poor opponents against the handful of incumbents with opponents.

Here are my general thoughts:

A lot of uncontested races, which sucks for a variety of reasons.

CB 7 & 9 should be interesting.

Rod Blago, Jesse White, Tim Johnson, Hynes, and Madigan should roll easily. At the county level, Shelden should win easily also.  (Some of these, I wish weren’t the case)

The 52nd Senate (Myers, Frerichs, and maybe Joe Pa) and the 103rd State Rep (Naomi, Rex, Tom) are the only races that will be close. The State Treasurer could be close, but I think Alexander G, will roll also.

What do you think? Is there a race you think I’m misjudging? What, if anything, am I overlooking?
