So far in Champaign County, Republicans outnumber Democrats in early voting by almost 2-to-1.
Waiting until almost the last minute, the Edwin Eisendrath campaign announced today that the Democratic candidate for governor has bought TV time. Here's part of the announcement:

I didn't know what to expect from the move to early voting in Illinois. But it appears to be a success. Through Thursday, 275 people in Champaign County had voted early. That's almost 70 a day.

In Sunday's editions, the two major Chicago papers made their endorsements in the Republican gubernatorial race -- the Tribune backing Chicagoan Ron Gidwitz, the Sun-Times supporting suburbanite Judy Baar Topinka.
If Edwin Eisendrath was scoring any points at all with his lame (so far) campaign for governor, it would show up in Champaign County.
This is an interesting topic, http://www.chicagotribune.com/features/lifestyle/health/chi-0602260214feb26,1,584050.story?coll=chi-new
There was a rumor going around that the Chicago Tribune was going to endorse in the governor's race today.
