Not only the old Emmanual seat but it was also held by Blagojevich and ex-felon Dan Rostenkowski.

Looking at the numbers I think the Dem won right?

Molly I think the percentages are missing some decimal points.

Chris - this was the primary so all it means right now is that Quigley and Pulido will meet in the general election in a few months. From the 10-1 advantage it's plain that the county can save a fw buck by just awarding the seat to whomever has a D after their name.

It's a long shot, but even if Pulido looses, she sends a message to the machine. She is very progun (at least says the right things on her website.) The more votes she pulls from Quigley, the better.

All you suburban Republicans, join with the few of us in Chicago to send a hit to the daley group!
