10th District Air War Picking Up for Dold, Schneider

Schneider and Dold already have five commercials on television.

Commercials for Rep. Robert Dold (R-Kenilworth) and Democratic challenger Brad Schneider of Deerfield are starting to hit the airwaves in the 10th Congressional District as both candidates try to chart a course of independence and bipartisanship.

Nowhere in any of the five commercials aired so far—three by Dold and two from Schneider—is the word Democrat or Republican mentioned. Neither are the words progressive or tea party used in the spots in this race drawing national attention.

“What you see now is fighting and gridlock,” Schneider said in his first commercial. “I’ll work with everyone. Democrat, Republican as long as they have a good idea.”

Dold offers a similar message. “The politicians in Springfield and Washington are just standing around bickering,” Dold said in his third commercial. “To create jobs we need to work together.” View all five spots by clicking on the appropriate link with this story.

With the Nov. 6 election 41 days away, Patch readers will see a lot of those commercials with Dold already committed to spending more than $1.8 million and groups committed to Schneider more than that.

Patch is also doing its best to keep readers informed and up to date with new and background information about the 10th District Race, Dold and Schneider.

"you will vote" That would require me to register. You have a better chance of hitting the lottery. I couldn't care less about the outcome in any election. Freedom will take a hit either way. Voting is a violent act. You're picking your preferred flavor of coercion to inflict on your fellow citizens. I will not be a part of violence and I will not sanction the evil of two lessers. Further, I often hear that you must vote in order to complain later. This is precisely backwards. If you vote, you are sanctioning the process with an implicit agreement to live with the result. If I don't sanction such shenanigans, I absolutely have the right to complain about the coercive violence that is inflicted upon me and my family.

"You, and guido, speak as you never worked for Dold. I wish you never do...it will make a Democrat out of you, quick" Nah, I'm not a violent person. I would never align with the red or blue tribes of the War Party.

I want to ask why Steve Sadin or any other Patch reporter has not investigated Brad Schneider's business record? http://freebeacon.com/the-schneider-shenanigans/

Probably the same reason they have not investigated Dold's true meaningful voting record and the Tea Party support he enjoyed when he first ran for election.

"I want to ask why Steve Sadin or any other Patch reporter has not investigated Brad Schneider's business record?" Math is hard. When Schneider puts himself out as a small businessman with zero revenue in 2010 or 2011, no one wants to add those numbers together. It'll take all day.
