I don't have much to say about Judy Baar Topinka's official entry into the Illinois governor’s race but Jim Leach thoroughly covers her appearance here in Springfield last night.
Jim links to a story on Topinks from the WLS-TV Chicago website. In it, she is referred to as Judy Topinka (no Baar). I’m no Topinkaphile but I think that’s the first time I’ve seen her name sans Baar. And I see someone from the Blagojevich re-election camp is quoted in the story also referring to her as only Judy Topinka. I guess I’m just out of the loop on this one.
