This past spring, a conservative blogger asked Democratic congressman Phil Hare at a townhall meeting in Quincy, Illinois about the constitutionality of the controversial health care legislation. “I don’t worry about the Constitution on this, to be honest,” Hare said.
This was the point that the race to represent Illinois’s 17th Congressional District in Washington began to get national attention.
And while not long ago the 17th Congressional District was still considered a long shot, that’s all changed. A recent poll released by the Hill shows Schilling with as much as a seven-point lead; Real Clear Politics has upgraded this race to “Lean GOP.”
