Today, Illinois voters are heading to the polls to vote in the important 2010 primaries. Many pundits and politicos are paying close attention to the GOP Senate primary, which Rep. Mark Kirk (IL-10) is expected to win. Kirk is seen by many as the answer to a Democratic stronghold- and pegged as the next Scott Brown. The GOP Primary to replace Kirk in Congress is also heating up. State Representative Beth Coulson is an outstanding common sense Republican and is facing a long list of challengers, two of whom have gained in the closing weeks after strong fundraising efforts.
RMC will update our members tomorrow on the outcome of all the races in Illinois, including the Illinois-10 primary.
