Gubenatorial Coverage

Last night, I spent some time watching Fox Chicago's (WLFD-32) coverage of the primaries in Illinois. I wish that Fox would have given Walter Jacobson more air time. He didn't appear on TV until close to 10 pm.

I wish that TV would stop catering to identity politics. This is voting based on ethnic group or race or religion. For example, in the Illinois Republican gubenatorial primary, there were four candidates: Jim Oberweis, Judy Topinka, Bill Brady and Ron Gidwitz. Gidwitz is Jewish, but he's a secular Jew and a social moderate, very similar to Judy Topinka. Ergo, why should I vote for him. I chose Jim Oberweis of Aurora because he is the closest candidate to my beliefs.
