Rumor About a Durbin Challenger

  • Illinois: Richard Durbin may have a foe, Kathy Salvi, the wife of the man Durbin beat in 1996. Last year, Kathy Salvi lost the IL-08 GOP primary by almost 10 points to the guy who went on to lose to Melissa Bean by 7 points.

    Awesome. And the ice cream sounds pretty tasty.
