LeAlan Jones, IL Green for US Senate, covered by Wall Street Journal
October 7, 2010 in Congressional Campaigns
Jonathan Weisman at the Wall Street Journal has written an article about Illinois Green Party US Senate candidate LeAlan Jones entitled “Greens may turn blue seat to red”:
…Mr. Obama once held the Senate seat, and lived on Chicago’s South Side, where he first won elective office on his strength in the black community.
But recent polls show the African-American Mr. Jones taking anywhere from 5% to 8% of the vote in Illinois—and posing a real threat to the Democratic candidate, State Treasurer Alexi Giannoulias, in his battle with GOP Rep. Mark Kirk.
