So the Hynes ad with Harold Washington...

Was the second story on the Channel 2 news tonight, with some reaction from voters that for the most part did not bode well for Quinn...

As they pointed out Dan Hynes dad ran as a third party candidate against Harold Washington. This is getting a decent amount of media play as well.

It will be interesting to see how Mayor Washington's Wikipedia page changes over the next few days. It does reference the Tom Hynes run for mayor (as of now).

I think the Harold Washington film clip Dan Hynes used in his campaign ad was very fair. It spoke exactly to the point Dan Hynes was making all along---that Pat Quinn is incompetent. And to further make that point, Pat Quinn is exhibiting the same traits today that Harold Washington lamented in his comments about Quinn 23 years ago. What is unfair about it? And how is is racist? Because Harold Washington is black? Because people are making assumptions about him targeting the black voters?? I don't believe so. I believe Hynes is a much smarter and more competent candidate. He was simply presenting an example to prove his point----and boy did it work!
