We've added CD-7 Republican Primary to the blogroll. The only candidate announced is Brian Campbell and by his website he obviously doesn't have any campaign experience.
Ed Tauer (5-1)
Has political and campaign experience. The GOP is thinking of placing him against Perlmutter. He'll stand a much better chance then other candidates and already has some ID in the 7th. He could possibly pose a threat to Perlmutter.
John Lerew (7-1)
John is a popular man for CD-7 Republicans. He wasn't know very well last year and I don't blame him. He virtually had no money to campaign with and almost did as well as Rick O'Donnell who spent tons of money in a nasty fight with Perlmutter. If the GOP has money to spare for CD-7 and Lerew goes for the nom again he possibly could be the only candidate to stand a chance of taking down Perlmutter. This is the GOP's best shot right now.
Troy Eid (12-1)
He can say he is a strong arm against corruption. Eid however would get slammed for running for Attorney General then Congress. He could possibly be seen as a guy who just wants to get elected and doesn't care where. He could fare well in the primary, but probably wouldn't win the general
Brian Campbell* (50-1)
It's very hard to get a 50-1 shot in a primary when you're the only announced candidate, but Campbell has toppled that hurtle. His website easily suggests he is an amateur who has never campaigned in his life before. Maybe if people could start seeing his face besides his cool shades he'd have a better chance. If anyone goes against Campbell, with the exception of Janich, he'll lose.
