According to Rasmussen, the Illinois Senate race is a toss-up. That's along with Colorado, Florida, North Carolina, Missouri, Nevada, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Washington, and Wisconsin. Don't forget, the same report also shows Indiana, Arkansas, Delaware, and North Dakota as potential pickups away from Democrats. But since I live in Illinois, my main concern is Illinois and we can help the various races around the state.
First, tomorrow we will find out if the Democrats in the 43rd State Senate will succeed in throwing Cedra Crenshaw, and African-American Tea Party candidate off the ballot. She is opposing Democrat A.J. Wilhelmi. The Democrats must be challenging Crenshaw's petitions because she breaks that liberal stereotyping of "racist Tea Partiers" and therefore she must go. There is a rally supporting her July 7th if you can make it!
Mark Kirk is up against Alexi Giannoulias and the race right now is tight. In addition, there several US House races that are winnable for the Republicans:
*** 17th Congressional - Bobby Schilling (R) versus incumbent Phil "I don't worry about the Constitution" Hare (D).
*** 14th Congressional - Randy Hultgren (R) versus incumbent Bill Foster (D)
*** 11th Congressional - Adam Kitzinger (R) versus incumbent Debbie Halverson (D)
*** 10th Congressional (Mark Kirk's district) - Robert Dold (R) versus Dan Seals (D)
Other races could also use your help - Issac Hayes in the 3rd CD, Joe Walsh in the 8th CD, Joel Pollak in the 9th CD and others around the state.
