That's just an old Illinois tradition no matter the party.

Even Illinois went to a Repub Governor. What does that say ?
Apples and oranges. Gubernatorial races and state congressional races are more for in house issues rather than national. I hate when they use the "I'll fight the president" card on them because state law can't contradict national law. The only way that can happen is to go back to a more Jefferson style US government which I don't see happening at at all. It's also that the two term presidents always have both house against them on the back half of their second term, even if they weren't going into the second term midterms. Ever hear of the six year itch?

Angus King and Bernie Sanders. I don't think either will "jump ship".

Yeah because (I think) he was a corrupt politician trying to sell off Barry's senate seat when he became President in 2008. Don't worry, Democrats, corruption isn't something that happens in only one party. However that is a different issue.

I hope we can get less polarized and actually get things done and find solutions.
