All Dems a threat to Schilling in IL-17
Republican Congressman Bobby Schilling is unopposed in the March 20 primary, but whoever wins the Democratic nomination will be a serious threat. There are 3 Democrats running in the 17th District primary - Greg Aguilar, Cheri Bustos and George Gaulrapp. NIU political scientist Matt Streb says they benefit from a traditionally Democratic district that was made even more Democratic after redistricting. Streb talks with WNIJ's Dan Klefstad about this contest.
