Vote this Tuesday!

In many states, primary elections are taking place this Tuesday, March 21. Voting in the primaries is at least as important as voting in the general elections, because they determine which candidate will have the party's nomination in November.

I will just briefly list which candidates I'm supporting on the Democratic primary ticket in contested elections and provide links to their websites and endorsements.

Governor, Illinois:
Rod Blagojevich

President, Cook County Board:
Forrest Claypool
