The race for Illinois' 11th Congressional District seat will be contentious. Also, it is paramount that Deborah Halvorson be unseated this November. She has sacrificed the interests of her constituents upon the alter of party agenda. Supporting a bloated stimulus bill that did not stimulate anything, job-killing cap and trade proposals in a district with higher unemployment than the national average and a health-care revolution without hosting one town-hall meeting to guage the feelings of her constituents. She needs to be unseated in favor of someone who actually cares, and is aware, of the interests and needs of Illinois' 11th district.
