The Red Seat has Turned Blue

Did you know that Dennis Hastert's district just put a democrat in his old seat? Physicist Bill Foster defeated republican dairy owner Jim Oberweis. The republicans say this is not a bellwether for how things will go in the fall. But then, they have to say that.

Tangentially, I did not know that Oberweis dairy was owned by a republican. I used to buy their super-overpriced milk because it comes in returnable bottles, and the dairy farmers pledge to be rbgh free. Ben will be happy to know that I won't bother buying that anymore.
