Dear Editor, Drury and Madigan Were Both Named in the Complaint Filed with Illinois State Board of Elections Alleging Illegal Campaign Coordination: Democratic candidate for State Representative Scott Drury claimed he would work to clean up state government, but a recently filed complaint with the Illinois State Board of Elections alleges Drury has engaged in illegal campaign coordination with Democratic Party Chairman Michael Madigan. State Law prohibits committees making independent expenditures from directly coordinating with campaigns, but this week both the Democratic Party of Illinois and the Democratic Majority PAC made independent expenditures on behalf of Scott Drury. Prior to these independent expenditures, the Democratic …
As Dold and Schneider greet as many voters as they can, a tiny fraction of those who will vote Tuesday responded to the Patch poll first published Thursday, Democrat gets 57 percent tally.
With perhaps one tenth of one percent of the electorate weighing in, Democrat Brad Schneider received 57 of the 135 votes cast in a highly unscientific Path Poll while Rep. Robert Dold (R-Kenilworth) got 40 percent in the contest for the 10th Congressional District Seat. Three respondents wanted someone else. Earlier: Poll: Do You Want Schneider or Dold Scientific polls taken in this race have used a sample size ranging from 400 to 1,275 people. Those surveys showed results from a dead heat to an 11-point lead for Dold. Meanwhile, Dold and Schneider spent Saturday contacting as many voters as they could. Dold continued touring the District by bus stopping in Northbrook, Mundelein, Vernon Hills, Grayslake, Highland Park, Park City and …

Reader demands apology from Drury for false advertising.
Saturday, November 3, 2012
Dear Editor, It was decided yesterday that WBBM-Newsradio Chicago was ordered to suspend radio ads that falsely accused Mark Shaw of saying things he never said. I know Mark Shaw to be as honorable as a person that I've ever met, and feel that it is criminal that Scott Drury could stoop this low along with Michael Madigan. What does this say about their character? I feel that an apology is required here, and the voters of the 58th district should all be made aware of this. Frank Karkazis Deerfield
More than $42 million has been spent on six Congressional races in Illinois and much of it right here in the 10th District between Brad Schneider and Robert Dold. Now it is your chance to vote on which commercial spins the tallest tale.
With four days to go until 10th Congressional District voters decide to reelect Rep. Robert Dold (R-Kenilworth) or replace him with Democrat Brad Schneider of Deerfield, the candidates are spending their time crisscrossing the area meeting voters. While Schneider and Dold make their case on a personal level, voters will continue to be pelted with television commercials in part attacking the two men. There are six contested Congressional race across Illinois and $42 million has been spent so far, according to a story in the Chicago Tribune. Earlier: Party Leaders Weigh in on 10th District Attack Ads Much of that money has been spent on negative commercials. Dold and Schneider will claim those attacks are distortions of their words and …

Schneider gets backing from Durbin.
Sen. Mark Kirk (R-Highland Park) made a rare public appearance Thursday when Rep. Robert Dold’s (R-Kenilworth) campaign bus stopped outside the senator’s Highland Park home for a visit. Kirk has made few public outings since stroke in January. Dold also picked up Kirk’s endorsement. The video released by the Dold campaign shows the two lawmakers talking but does not disclose the details of their conversation. “Rep. Dold and I have worked on strengthening the security of Israel and to prevent Iran from acquiring nuclear weapons capabilities,” Kirk said in a release from the Dold campaign. “We worked together to put tougher sanctions on Iran’s energy sector and encouraged the administration to sign the new sanctions into law.” Meanwhile, …
Take the unofficial, unscientific Patch poll and give us your comments. You get the results Sunday.
With election day approaching Tuesday and the nation’s eyes focused on the 10th Congressional District race between Rep. Robert Dold (R-Kenilworth) and Democratic challenger Brad Schneider of Deerfield, Patch is taking a very unscientific poll. With very little polling information available to the general public, little is known about the potential outcome of the campaign. What is known is millions of dollars have been spent by the campaigns and outside groups trying to influence voters. Earlier: National Democrats Shine Spotlight on 10th The two contenders have debated once in a public in a forum sponsored by the League of Women Voters, Patch and the Union League Club of Chicago. They have also appeared on television together three times…
Julie Morrison votes while Arie Friedman greets voters at train station.
Deerfield was a hub of activity Wednesday for the two candidates who hope to succeed retiring state Sen. Susan Garrett (D-Lake Forest). Both the Republican candidate, Highland Park pediatrician Arie Friedman, and his Democratic opponent, West Deerfield Township Supervisor Julie Morrison, were in the Village. Earlier: Morrison, Friedman Intensify Attacks Morrison did herself some concrete good. She voted. When asked who she voted for, she answered with a smile. She does like the idea of early voting and hopes to see it expanded. “I’ll be very busy election day talking to voters so I decided to vote today,” Morrison said. “Early voting is a great idea. I’d like to see it open at least one week night and possibly some hours on Sunday.” …

Democratic challenger to Rep. Robert Dold (R-Kenilworth) turned around a family business.
When Robert Dold (R-Kenilworth) ran for the House of Representatives two years ago, he presented his experience as President of his Rose Pest Control as a reason voters should send him to Congress. Deerfield management consultant Brad Schneider, Dold’s Democratic challenger, is touting his business background as a reason the citizens of the 10th Congressional District should now send him to Washington instead. Earlier: Party Leaders Weigh in on 10th District Attack Ads Now independent expenditure groups wanting to assure Dold’s reelection and to some degree the North Shore Congressman himself are questioning Schneider’s business success. They base their criticism on Schneider’s refusal to release his federal income tax returns and …
Morrison, Friedman, Schneider and Dold use different techniques to directly communicate message.

I look for leadership in deciding who I want to represent me in congress. I also look for someone who stands up for the issues important to me. Women’s health issues is high on that list. Any assessment of Congressman Bob Dold’s stance on women’s health issues is that he does not lead or stand up for women when it matters. I was there in 1973 when women were granted the right to make their own decisions about their own bodies. This momentous decision for women will always need legislative reinforcement. Supporting that right should include supporting the institutions that care about women’s health by providing basic health services. Bob Dold voted for the “Protect Life Act” - also known as the “Let Women Die Act.” This amendment …
