11. It's not just for running
It's because Nancy continues to not tell the truth about her record and other issues. Plus, I have the same goal as everyone here does, putting a quality Democrat in to the seat held by Joe Knollenberg. I have put myself at personal risk to get the public to open their eyes to the terrible record of Joe Knollenberg, so I feel that I personally have a dog in the hunt in this race.

The only reason I got so involved in this race personally, is that I truly felt that Nancy would stay out of the race this time around. I was ecstatic when Gary Peters jumped in the race, a quality Democrat with a solid progressive record that also has proven fund raising capabilities.

I was extremely disappointed when, after saying she might get in the race for several months, Nancy jumped back in.

Anyone can run, and Nancy is certainly entitled to run, but I question her judgment when we already have a strong, progressive candidate in Gary Peters with a proven record on the important issues and Nancy is all talk, that's what she used to do for a living. Her experience does not include any elective office. And she's 0-2 running for elective office, not someone that would instill a lot of confidence if she were interviewing for the job. I suppose she could say I almost closed the deal last time, so I'm sure I can close it this time, but apparently she didn't close the deal in IL when she chose to run for her first elective office for the U.S. Senate. To me that's like just graduating from college and applying for a CEO job at a major corporation. And she hasn't done anything since her last run to improve her resume'.

In 2006, when all the signs were against John Ashcraft, who was running against Nancy prior to the primary deadline, withdrew his name because Nancy had gotten major endorsements, raised more money and had everything going her way. John was gracious in throwing his support to Nancy. I wish that Nancy had done the same thing, assessed the situation, looked at the facts and graciously thrown her support to Gary Peters. But that was not to be, unfortunately.
