2010 Senate race: Illinois
Nov 2, 2010 — Illinois voters strongly dislike both candidates which likely explains the closeness of the race. Both candidates are seen as having problems telling the truth.
Aug 17, 2010 — Former Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich (D) has been found guilty on just 1 of 24 counts he was charged with. The judge says he will ask for a mistrial on the remaining charges; the government pledges to retry their case.
