Follow-up: Election Winner

A few days ago, Collin posted about the frontrunner candidates’ Web sites for those running in the special election primary for Illinois’ 5th Congressional District. The results are in, and Mike Quigley won the Democratic primary by a few thousand votes. What gave him the edge? Anyone living in the district knows it wasn’t poster signs, because his competitor John Fritchey’s name is plastered everywhere across local residences and businesses. I don’t have a definitive answer, but his Web site was the only one that could brag of endorsements from rival newspapers the Chicago Tribune and the Chicago Sun-Times.-Jesse
