Just two Mondays left between now and election day here in Illinois. And that means...it is time to take a look around Facebook to see what some of the hard-working candidates were up to this weekend. 8 days to go, folks. Let's win this thing!
Here's the roundup:
Congressional Candidate Mike Bost rode a float and threw out beads at a Mardi Gras parade. Hurricanes after for the campaign staff, we hope!
State Senator and U of I Alum Chapin Rose was at the Illini vs. Minnesota Homecoming game and he even was able to capture a picture of the (unfortunately) elusive Chief Illiniwek. We can bet that every alum in Memorial Stadium wishes the Chief was at midfield, not at the top of the Student Section during the three-in-one.
State Senator Dan Duffy was out on the campaign trail with Gubernatorial candidate Bruce Rauner. Duffy has been doing a great job 'supporting the team' of GOP candidates in Illinois this cycle.
Congressman Randy Hultgren went 'full Griswold' and rocked a white (our preferred version) Blackhawks sweater at the Sycamore Pumpkin Festival Parade.
Congressman Aaron Schock continues to live a *very* interesting life as he spent the weekend at WIU and was able to fire the JROTC cannon at the kickoff of the game. Pretty sweet.
