Deep Thoughts

If David Hoffman had won the nomination, he'd be consistently 5 points ahead of Mark Kirk. And if the primary had been a month later, he'd have won it.

If Dan Hynes had won the gubernatorial nomination, he'd be ahead of Bill Brady by a similar margin, and if the primary had been a month later, he'd probably have won it.

If Kirk Dillard had rustled up a few hundred more votes, he'd be ahead of Quinn by ten points. If he'd ended up facing Hynes, it would probably be a dead heat.

If the primary had been four or five months later, Mark Kirk would have lost the nomination.

Deeper thought: if Daley had announced his retirement last year, Toni Preckwinkle would have sat out the County Board race and run for mayor.

Deeper thought: if Giannoulias and Quinn lose by smaller margins than the Green Party vote in their respective races, it will end the GP's relevance in state politics.
