Election night Illinois

Results are starting to trickle in. The big story is the low-turnout.

From Eric Zorn's Change of Subject blog:

Former Gov. Jim Edgar was just interviewed on WGN AM 720 and struck a very pessimistic note about tonight's prospects for the gubernatorial candidate he is backing, Judy Baar Topinka.

Edgar theorizes that the hardcore conservatives, who have coalesced around Jim Oberbweis, will benefit. The red-meat conservatives--yes, we have them in Illinois, typically vote no matter what the conditions.

I'm watching Fox 32 Chicago, where Rich Miller of the Capital Fax blog, is scheduled to contribute to the coverage.
