I really must protest your allegation of "fudging numbers". What is being fudged is how red or blue is determined, and who in fact runs the particular state. Here is another link; http://www.americanthinker.com/2013/09/the_myth_o...

Thanks for the explanation, CoolEdge. I'm not sure how any primary voter's intent (regarding who they might plan on voting for in the general election) could be verified... but your points are well taken. Especially as it relates to the pork-barrel spending.

Thanks, BG. I figured from the video that the security guy was probably completely full of it, from his ridiculous "I'm not dealin with it today!" remark. I would be interested to see if he is disciplined (or charged with anything) for his behavior.... but that will never happen.

the fliers said the tea party guy was trying to keep black people from voting. The other problem is they showed 1000's had already voted in the other primary so were no eligible. And the law says they have to intend to vote for that candidate in the general, not just cross over to elect the weaker candidate. Cochran is a big porker, bringing back like three times what MS pays in. Certainly…

I bet Quinn learned this from Dick Durbin - another INTIMIDATOR.

Ameren Illinois wraps up storm restoration work

2 weeks, 6 days ago from Ameren Illinois

More than 200 field and support personnel aided neighboring utilities

Ameren Illinois is finalizing its efforts to restore power to customers in the northwest corner of its service territory who were affected by a strong line of thunderstorms that made their way through the state last night.

With power restored to 99 percent of affected customers, the company is dispatching more than 200 Ameren Illinois and contract personnel to northeast Illinois and northern Indiana to assist ComEd and Northern Indiana Public Service Company with remaining storm restoration work.

"Now that communities in the Ameren Illinois service territory have been stabilized, we are dispatching crews through the mutual assistance process to support the clean-up effort that is going on in northern Illinois and hard hit areas in Indiana," said Richard Mark, president and CEO of Ameren Illinois.

The mutual assistance process is a voluntary process that assists investor-owned utilities from across the country with coordination of personnel and resources following a storm or other large scale event.  The United States has seven Regional Mutual Assistance Groups, organized by geography, that help facilitate the mutual assistance process. Expenses incurred as a result of mutual assistance are taken care of by the requesting utility.

"Ameren Illinois co-workers and contractors are selflessly giving of themselves to help our neighbors, and I can't think of a better way to show our support during this time of need," Mark said.

Ameren Illinois delivers energy to 1.2 million electric and 807,000 natural gas customers in downstate Illinois, and our mission is to power the quality of life. Our service area covers more than 1,200 communities and 43,700 square miles.

@eyokley If Hillary doesn't run, there's a huge void and Nixon will have appeal. If she does, he has to be on the VP short list. #AmIWrong
