Better than Football: 6th CD Dem. Lindy Scott on TV / Webcast

Revised slightly on Monday, Nov. 28 at 7:10 pm

Our show with Prof. Lindy Scott [D-Wheaton, 6th CD Primary Candidate] is airing tonight in 34 suburbs and repeating tomorrow night in 10 of those suburbs [See below for details on the airing schedule]. The show will also air on Monday night, November 28, through-out the City of Chicago on Cable Ch. 21 [CANTV] at 8:30 pm. The show can also be watched anytime as a webcast on the Public Affairs Cinema Complex [See here]
Did Bush lie about the reasons for going into Iraq? Or, are various Democrat national leaders being hypocritical about the U. S. decision to take military action in Iraq,and the consequences of that action? Does the 6th CD prefer Scott or Roskam on guns? on the War? on Social Security? Does the 6th prefer Cegelis or Scott on parental notice? on O'Hare? Is the country off track? Repeal the Bush Tax Cuts? These issues and many, many more are discussed and debated by show host and legal recruiter Jeff Berkowitz with 6th CD Dem. Primary candidate Prof. Lindy Scott [Wheaton].
Prof. Scott is challenging Christine Cegelis [D-Rolling Meadows] in the Primary. It is said that DCCC Chairman Rahm Emanuel is encouraging Tammy Duckworth to enter the 6th CD Dem. Primary. Duckworth was severely injured [One leg almost entirely amputated and another at the knee] during her Reserve service in the Iraq War and she is still in the Reserves. Apparently, due to her military obligations, she is unable to say, at this point, if she will run in the March 21, 2006 Primary election.

Cegelis lost to Cong. Henry Hyde [R-Addison] only by a 56-44 margin during the 2004 campaign [BTW, that was slightly better than the 57-43 loss by Melissa Bean to then Cong. Phil Crane in the 8th CD during Bean's first effort in 2002; Bean, who like Cegelis, never stopped running, came back in 2004 to upset Crane 52-48. Crane, of course, was a weaker opponent than the Democrats in the 6th CD are likely to have in 2006. On the other hand, the 8th CD is a more Repubican District than the 6th CD].

Hyde, 81, who has held the 6th CD seat since 1974, is stepping down at the end of this term, creating an open seat. State Senator Roskam [R-Wheaton], who thought he had cleared the Republican Primary of any opponents [Sen. Pankau and Dupage Recorder of Deeds J. P. [Ric] Carney decided discretion was the better part of valor], now has a moderate Republican opponent in one John Vivoda, a Businessman and Glen Ellyn School Board Member.

Looks like we have a horse race, as they say. Or, maybe two or three.
