George Gollin: Will he or won't he?

Postby Jimmy » Wed Mar 19, 2014 12:50 am

Tonight is the big night for George Gollin. Will he win the Democratic nod in the 13th Illinois Congressional District primary?

Hoping Erika Harold upsets incumbent Rodney Davis in the GOP primary.

He won't. With 100% of the vote counted, the Champaign News-Gazette reports:

* Ann E. Callis 17,279
George Gollin 9,908
David L. Green 4,431

Further coverage, I'm sure, will be forthcoming on DLT. :roll:

Well, my candidate in the GOP primary lost as well. She received 41% against an incumbent which isn't bad. Hope she runs again.

George apparently spent just about $500,000, at least a third from his own pocket. Seems like a lot for a congressional race in a low-population district.
