The Patch has a nice article today noting the entrance of yet another inexperienced, no-name Democrat who is throwing his hat into the race for the Democratic nomination to take on freshman Congressman Bob Dold in the 2012 general election.
Enter Vivek Bavda, 34, a Chicago attorney who lives in Mundelein. Like fellow Dem hopeful Ilya Sheyman, he is the son of immigrants, and he feels he has a compelling story to tell. From what I can tell from the Patch article, Bavda is another far-left Democrat who believes the government must step in to solve all of our problems. Swell.
I bet Dan Seals is watching all of this from his new job at DCEO and grinding his teeth, given that he could easily walk into this race today and take the nomination, I'd bet. I'd also bet that he'd lose the general, even with the revamped 10th District, so he's probably a lot better off with his new cushy state job.
