-- FRONT PAGE TOP OF FOLD IN DUPAGE EDITION: DIERSEN HEADLINE: Beyond outrageously, DuPage County Democrat Party Chairman Bob Peickert said DuPage County residents are "fed up with the Republican way of life in the county" even though Republican leadership has made DuPage County one the safest and most prosperous counties in the nation. Villa Park Trustee Tom Cullerton filed to run against Pankau, Jim Hagerty of Roselle filed to run against Coladipietro, Joseph Heneghan of Woodridge filed to run against Connelly, Stan Jagla of Roselle filed to run against Kachiroubas, David Meek of Westmont filed to run against Bucholz, Dan Bailey filed to run for a District 4 seat on the county board, and Steve Paglia of Naperville filed for the District 5 seat on the county forest preserve board. Cronin blasted the Democrats for not participating in the primary election process, said Cullerton is "little bit confused," and said that the Democrats picked "people who have an ax to grind."
-- DIERSEN HEADLINE: Because Illinois Democrats have spend so many tax dollars on welfare projects, the state lacks "matching funds" to take advantage of all the funding for transportation capital projects that the federal government is offering. Kirk blasts Illinois Democrats for the state not having the matching funds, but it seems that Kirk did not blast Illinois Democrats for spending so many tax dollars on welfare projects.
