CN November 4, 2010

We get a chance to look at Tuesday’s election with a two-day perspective on today’s show. At taping time the Joe Walsh/Melissa Bean race was still officially undecided, as was the Governor’s race. But Pat Quinn had what appeared to be an insurmountable lead.  We began the discussion with what we now know to be an erroneous report posted on HuffPo – that Bill Brady had said he wished Cook County would secede from Illinois.  After we finished recording,  we learned that it was a supporter, not Brady, who made the remark. We regret that we helped pass on this incorrect report.  Here’s the current version of the Huffington Post story.

Of course, we also kick around all the other races and look forward to the ever-shrinking field of candidates in the Mayoral race.

On the panel: Hoy’s Metropolitan Editor Octavio Lopez, Independent writer and columnist Monroe Anderson and Chicago Magazine Contributing Editor and political blogger Carol Felsenthal.
