Dan Seals finds the 8th CD!

We know Dan lives in the 9th and has campaign meet-ups in Chicago. Now he's found the 8th Congressional District:

EIGHTH DISTRICT DEMS: U.S. Sen. Dick Durbin and 10th District congressional candidate Dan Seals of Wilmette will be the featured speakers at "A Celebration of Democracy" dinner sponsored by the 8th District Democrats and Independents at 4:30 p.m. Nov. 11 at Hawthorn Woods Country Club, Hawthorn Woods.

Wonder when he'll find the 10th?

Maybe we should buy a table.

Can we ask Melissa Bean to sit with us? I'd be p****d if I was her.

The other funny thing is the very name of this group. The 8th District Democrats AND Independents??? Is this not just a blatant attempt to suck in some independents for conversion to the True Religion?

Maybe they'd get some true independents to look at their group ONCE, given the name, but once they actually showed up to an event and saw how slanted the group was, wouldn't they be PO'd? Do they really think they are fooling anyone? After all, the speakers for this event are Durbin and a guy running for congress on the Dem ticket that's not even in their district?

And what in the world is Dan Seals doing out in the 8th CD? He won't get any votes out there. Does he think his star power is such that now, in Obama-like fashion, he is going out to campaign for other Dems (of course, the difference is that Seals has not even won an election himself yet!)

But this makes no sense either, as Bean doesn't need Seals to stump for her (and she apparently won't be there anyway), nor does Durbin need "help" from Seals.

This is quite a mystery. Or, maybe it's just another in a series of bonehead moves by Dan Seals...

We don't know for sure that Bean won't be there - but I can't believe she would go and not be a speaker.

I like Melissa. She works hard and like Kirk is a moderate more interested in representing her district than towing the party-line. You have to wonder if Bean's independence has anything to do with Durbin bringing Dan to her district.

UM, our Senior Senator is anything but independent in thought or action. Bringing Mr. Seals to the 8th is a puzzlement. Remember, Seals is a one issue guy, Iraq. He might think that he's going to an event in the district.......he's just not in THE district he'd like to represent!
