Damn right I wasn't. Thing is, though, the situation with my neck of the woods is due to Dems in this state gerrymandering some Republican districts out of existence. Personally, I don't agree at all with this and wish all states would do what California supposedly did with redistricting. It's just nuts the way some of these districts (like mine) are shaped.It wasn't that long ago where the left wing nuts (not you) was saying the Republican party is dead.Hell, MY district just became a Republican sinkhole. We don't even have a Dem challenger this year.I didn't vote for Duckworth in 2006, because I felt that she was somewhat vague on what she was going to do if she got to Congress, and because she didn't actually live in the district at the time. (Also, as I said, I used to be a lot more Right Wing).
Since then they moved my town out of that district and into the one represented by that stain, Walsh. So oddly, here I am in a position of having to vote for two Democrats at the top of the ballot because the GOP can't seem to find good candidates.
