    Governor - Brady
    1 Senator - Kirk
    Cook County Board President (Not a small insignificany job) - Keats
    State Controller - Topinski
    State Treasurer - Rutherford

    US House Representatives: Could be the first time in a long time there are more Republican Representatives then Democrats

    Illinois General Assembly - Its 60-40 Democrats in both the IL House of Representatives and Senate, but its reported that 60 could get cut down to as low as 52-48 in both houses!

    Not quite all red, but when you take the Governor, majority of US House Reps, 50% of the US Senators, the State Controller, State Treasurer, Cook County Board President and a slight minority in the General Assembly at the very least you might not be able to consider Illinois a blue state anymore!

    If only Steven Kim could upset Madigan for Attorney General and Chicago could get a Red Mayor, then IL would be on the right track!

    I live 100 miles west of Chicago and the biggest majority of the people in my area vote Republican. I know lots of people throughout Illinois in the rural areas and the majority of those vote Republican. The problem is the Chicagoland area. It's loaded down with Democrats and the Democratic machine. Most of the people living in Illinois wish Chicago was a state within it's self because of all of the typical Chicagoland crap that goes with it - not to mention all the Democrats. If you took the Chicagoland area out of play, Illinois would certainly be a spot on the Republican map.

    I think Oscars on to something. I think the dems pushing cap and trade was what pissed off a lot of midwestern independents the most.

    I think Mitch McConnell said it best:

    You all need to take a look into reality.

    Mitch is right of course. The voters don't love Republicans, they just hate demonRats more this year. Go to bed early dear. Plant your pillow over your head and dream of better days. Cause we're opening a big can of whoop ass tonight.
