8th District Race...

The race for the 8th District Republican nomination to face Congresswoman Melissa Bean is going to be one of the most highly contested primaries in the Mid-west... The candidates are shown to the right... they include (from left to right, top first), Aaron Lincoln, S. David McSweeney, Kathy Salvi, Rep. Bob Churchill, and Ken Arnold.

Which one of these candidates do you think can win the primary? Beat Melissa Bean? What are their strengths and weaknesses?

Here is Roll Call's overview of the race http://www.rollcall.com/electionmap/IL.html#8th
