BATTING A THOUSAND

MONDAY MORNING

I've lived in California for the last 30 years, but I was born and raised in Urbana, Illinois, and to this day my family has a farm in operation in Illinois' 15th Congressional District. So, I wondered what the entire "Illinois Congressional Delegation" felt about Senator Durbin's comments. I contacted the offices of each Senator(2) and Representative(19) in Illinois and asked the following question:

Does your office think Senator Durbin should apologize?

Here are the results:

Sen. Durbin-D 202-224-2152 Will not answer phone. UPDATE: Got through to his Chicago office and they say his latest statement is all they have available. No opinion it is.
Sen. Obama-D 202-224-2854 -No opinion
