    Rick Santorum’s campaign and super PAC have been outspent by a margin of 7 to 1 in the Illinois primary, with forces supporting Mitt Romney shelling out a total of about $3.7 million on the airwaves, according to a GOP media-buying source. Romney’s campaign has spent $1,117,704 million in Illinois while the super PAC Restore Our Future has put in $2.556,353 million. The Santorum campaign spent a comparatively modest $219,961 and the super PAC backing Santorum, the Red White and Blue Fund, put in $312,150. The gulf was even more enormous in the crucial, expensive Chicago media market. There, Romney’s...

    The Race in Illinois Mitt Romney and his allies have pounded Rick Santorum on television and radio, especially in the expensive market of Chicago, where the suburban vote could prove decisive for Mr. Romney. Mr. Santorum was still hoping for a strong vote from downstate Illinois — abutting two states where he won, Iowa and Missouri — but his aides indicated that their hopes were fading in light of the heavy advertising campaign against him. Mr. Romney’s aides believe a comfortable victory could be at hand on Tuesday, but Mr. Santorum and the rest of the field showed no signs...

    Rick Santorum: Send Them A Message in Illinois – and Beyond By Richard A. Viguerie | 3/20/12 Rick Santorum’s campaign in Illinois – once again being outspent 10 to 1 by the Mitt Romney attack machine – is powered by a simple theme: Send Them A Message. Santorum’s rise as the conservative alternative to establishment moderate Mitt Romney isn’t an accident or the result of a slick advertising campaign. Rick is where he is because grassroots movement conservatives and Tea Party voters across America have had it with the establishment Republican Party, and its business-as-usual insiders of the Wall Street...

Newt Gingrich, Paul, Perry, Mitt Romney, Rick Santorum and Buddy Roemer all filed the required 3,000 signatures. Jon Huntsman skipped Illlinois.

    One year ago Barack Obama became the 44th President of the United States. He took office and began implementing his agenda of “change.” This agenda could be summarized as: “Government taking control.” This year we have a chance to fix what is broken, stop massive government spending, and put an end to a Washington that is only interested in helping Washington. This year is not about Illinois or Massachusetts. It is not about Florida or California. This year is about taking our liberty back from a government that is taking it away through rapid growth. It is about taking our...

    Turnout was light at midday with about 25 percent of registered voters in the Chicago area casting votes in primary elections marked by few problems at polling places. Congressional redistricting seemed to cause the greatest turmoil. McHenry County Clerk Kathy Schultz called the 25 percent turnout there “a little below normal.” It was 30 percent two years ago. “Absentees were way down,” she said. Turnout was running 25 percent to 27 percent in DuPage County, said Pat Bond, election board legal counsel. About 85 percent of the voters were Republican, he said. Will County Clerk Jan Gould was predicting a...
