Burgers, brats, hot dogs, corn and ice cream, plus beer, soft drinks or water.

If you are interested particularly in helping Larry Kaifesh win the 8th Dist. Congressional seat, you might want to participate in the Joint Day of Action for Larry Kaifesh & Bruce Rauner, hosted by the Kaifesh campaign this Saturday, Sept. 6, and featuring two-hour precinct walking shifts at -- your choice -- either 10 a.m. or noon.

We need election judges for the Nov. 4 election. Pay for the day is $120, with $50 added for going through the required training, so essentially $170. Spanish-speaking judges are in especially short supply. Can you do it? Call our HQ at 847/632-1774 and leave a message for Frank Palisi, our election judge coordinator, so he can get in touch with you to answer questions or to sign you up. Or you can go directly to the county clerk's website at http://www.cookcountyclerk.com/elections/electionjudges/Pages/default.aspx.

The campaigns are underway for real -- less than 60 days to election day. Can you give us a few volunteer hours to greet voters who come in? From here on out, we need all the help you can give us to bring in the votes for our candidates. That includes phone banking and much more.

Did you see the polls released this week in the US Senate campaign? We haven't seen any from Sen. Durbin, because his campaign isn't admitting what is going on. But here's the real news: Early this week, the Sun-Times published a poll showing a margin of just seven points between Durbin and our nominee, Jim Oberweis. And the next day, the Oberweis campaign released a poll -- taken by a respected political polling firm -- showing a six-point spread: Durbin 44% to Oberweis 38%. This race is do-able! As Sen. Oberweis said in releasing his poll results: "The voters of Illinois are hungry for a new direction. Career politicians like Dick Durbin have made a mess of our economy, our schools and our neighborhoods. They [Voters] want new policies, not excuses. They want leaders who will act in the public interest, not their own self-interest." No wonder Dick Durbin is in trouble. By the way, according to political professionals, any incumbent who polls at under 50% is in trouble -- especially this close to the election.
