I’m going to conduct a straw poll of declared and potential Democratic candidates in the upcoming 2016 U.S. Senate election here in Illinois. There is currently only one declared Democratic candidate, Tio Hardiman, a political activist from Chicago, but several other Democrats are considering. The straw poll includes dozens of potential Democratic U.S. Senate candidates, including several you probably didn’t think of as potential opponents to Republican incumbent Mark Kirk, and you also have the option of writing-in a potential candidate that I’ve not listed. I’ll keep the poll online until 10 P.M. Central Daylight Time on Tuesday, March 17, 2015, although I may decide to shut the poll down at a later date and time than that.
You can vote in the poll here:
