2014 IL-10: Congressman Schneider (D) v Former Congressman Dold (R)

This House race has the potential for being one of the more competitive Congressional elections in 2014.


Former Rep. Robert Dold, R-Ill, announced on Wednesday that he will officially run for Illinois’ 10th District, setting up a rematch in one of the state’s most competitive seats.








Last cycle, Dold lost to now-Rep. Brad Schneider, D-Ill., by about 3,000 votes. The 10th District leans Democratic, and President Barack Obama won it with 57 percent last year.





Dold, a pest control business owner [dayum, that sounds familiar], was heavily recruited by the National Republican Congressional Committee to run again in the district, located north of Chicago.


[/break1]rollcall.com/bob-dold-announces-house-comeback-campaign/]http://atr.rollcall.com/bob-dold-announ ... -campaign/The Cook Political Report has IL-10 with a Partisan Voting Index (PVI) of D+8. A Democrat winning by only 3k votes in a D+8 district makes it suspect the Democratic candidate has some flaws.





For comparison purposes, Congresswoman Tammy Duckworth (D-08) also represents a district that is rated D+8. She won in 2012 by approximately 20k against a candidate that did have flaws, a bunch of them.

Dold was elected the first time riding on Mark Kirk's coattail. Schneider was basically unknown and beat him. Schneider will have the home court advantage next time.

I won't mind at all if you've proved me wrong. My comments were based upon the congressional district PVI rating and the 2012 election results. Those results were not flattering for Congressman-elect Schneider.GENERAL ELECTION - 11/6/201210TH CONGRESSCandidate..Vote Totals..Percent Total 1) SCHNEIDER....133,890...50.63% 2) DOLD...........130,564...49.37%[/break1]elections.il.gov/ElectionInformation/VoteTotalsList.aspx?ElectionType=GE&ElectionID=33&SearchType=OfficeSearch&OfficeID=6013&QueryType=Office&]http://www.elections.il.gov/ElectionInf ... pe=Office&GENERAL ELECTION - 11/6/2012PRESIDENT AND VICE PRESIDENT

Why, I'm certain she could have finished either 30th or 31st.
