Post-Dispatch columnist, Bill McClellan, has a piece today relating the Illinois Congressional race between Ann Callis and Rodney Davis. Seems the national democrats have quietly pulled away from Callis believing her chances of winning are slim, "essentially out of reach for democrats".
Most of the column is a subtle/friendly promo for Ann Callis which he has a perfect right to do. While he does not diss Davis in any way, his support for Callis is quite evident and most likely he hopes Illinois voters will be persuaded.
If you're an Illinois voter this column will be interesting, but just once I'd like to see local republicans be portrayed in similar manner.
In an aside, this is the second day in a row a P-D online story comes up with the actual story blanked out. I don't believe it is our internet since every other site works fine.
