Illinois Guv Race Close

Thirdpower reports on the Illinois results. It’s too close to call between Bill Brady and Pat Quinn. If we win this, we might get concealed carry and preemption in Illinois. My understanding is this will fix Chicago’s gun laws. Keep your fingers crossed. We could set gun control back a decade with this win.

    This is going to be a mess to sort out, with all those absentee ballots being botched for the military guys.

    Has Mayor Daley voted yet?

  3. Matthew Carberry says:


    I’m sure both of them did.

    Even if Brady does win, which I sincerly hope, I would not hold my breath about CCW in IL.

    Mike Madigan, is speaker of the house in IL and both he and his daughter (IL Attorney General) are both rabidly antis.

    I wish it was otherwise.

    I don’t see a victor in this for a few months. After all with them breaking the law and not sending out ballots for our soldiers overseas and the vote being so close already this one will probably drag out for awhile. Maybe a lawsuit as well.

    I still do wonder if my dead grandparents voted for Quinn?
