Waukegan businessman Keith Gray, who is challenging State Senator Terry Link in the 30th Senate District, has unveiled a new video ad. As you might expect, it's heavy on Link's problems such as the petition scandal and his ties to Rod Blagojevich.
It will be interesting to see how widespread the Gray campaign can afford to disseminate the video, but it's a nice little piece. I don't know if Terry Link has EVER done a TV ad, but we'll see if this spurs him to try some new things, after years of complacency.
10th DISTRICT CRIME WATCH: Several media outlets including the News-Sun are reporting that Dan Seals' small Waukegan campaign office was recently broken into. Apparently the thieves were persistent, and after failing at breaking in through the back, simply broke the glass in the front. They stole a bunch of computer equipment and other supplies. TA has an alibi.
Apparently no useful campaign data was stolen because Seals doesn't have any. After all, what good are internal polls showing him 22 points down to Mark Kirk?
All kidding aside, it's good no one was hurt, and considering Seals' office was right on one of main drags, Genesee Street, right across the street from the revamped Genesee Theater, it shows that Waukegan has still got a lot of work to do to make it a safer downtown where families are going to feel comfortable going for entertainment.
