Democratic Cook County Commissioner Mike Quigley is cruising tonight in the 5th District race to replace Rahm Emanuel in Congress.
With 45 percent of precincts counted, Quigley had an 8,500-vote lead over Republican Rosanna Pulido and Green Party candidate Matt Reichel.

Kind of expected but it’s not her fault. Conservatives support her and the GOP doesn’t.
Quigley is a real horses ass too. Good to see the RNC so heavily supporting this fine conservative lady. /s
Too many brain-dead sheep-dipped Democrat voters. GOP could spend a million bucks and she’d still trail.
You need the Democrat guy to be indicted to win there (Rosty’s old seat?)
They haven’t learned their lesson yet. Guess they need to lose over a few more election cycles. Dem Light isn’t a winning brand.
She was no dem light. She’s a conservative. I can see how my post could be misconstrued.
She’s a Freeper too. No?
Pulido trailing by more than 3 to 1 in Chicago precincts
i think she could break over 30% when the suburbs report.
Rosanna is no dem light. She’s too far right for republicans. Pro American and all that.
Wasn’t there a Chicago republican encouraging people to write in Abe Lincoln over Pulido?
Chicagolady got ZERO help from the Republican Party. I’ll send my dollars straight to Sarah Palin, but not a dime more to the RNC. Screw them!
Blame the over majority of Democrats in Chicago.
Do the math
That’s an incredibly low turnout. What was NY-20’s ? 150,000 ? And this isn’t even 30k ? We could’ve put some real attention here but Michael Steele was AWOL. Disgusting. News flash to Steele, we have to win Dem seats in order to win back Congress.
yes, even one quality mailing to GOP households over the weekend could have pumped up turnout ... a 5-day blitz of door knocking could have caught the dems napping.
Let us remember that there is no Obama backlash in ILLINOIS.
with 80% of the precincts reporting,
Pulido has 24%
this is the 4/7 special election, not the primary, even though the headline says “primary”.
Illinois is the kingdom of the Messiah. In downtown Chicago, there are posters of the Messiah everywhere. Disagreeing with the Messiah is considered unpatriotic. Chicagolady’s posting history on FR became a campaign issue. The Chicago media constantly called FR a racist site.
with 84% reporting, Pulido is at 24.1%.
with 95% reporting, Pulido is at 24.0%.
