Want To Win Over Voters? Threaten To Strip Lawmakers Of Their Pay: The Race For Comptroller

There wasn't supposed to be an election for a statewide constitutional officer this year, but Democrats essentially foisted one, following the sudden death of Republican Judy Baar Topinka. That's led to an expensive, competitive race for comptroller this year --- a race that could show who's winning the war of public opinion in Gov. Bruce Rauner and Democratic House Speaker Michael Madigan's battle for Illinois' future.

Who knows what would have happened had Democrats held onto the governor's office in 2014?

George Leads Illini To 31-27 Football Win Over Michigan State

Jeff George Jr. threw for 140 yards and two touchdowns Saturday, the second a 16-yard strike to Sam Mays that gave Illinois a 31-27 win over Michigan State.
 
The win broke a two-game losing streak for the Illini (3-6, 2-4 Big Ten). It also extended the Spartans' misery. Michigan State (2-7, 0-6) has lost seven in a row.

Administrators at Parkland College in Champaign are recommending the layoffs of a number of non-tenured faculty at the end of the school year.
