Schneider gets backing from Durbin.
Sen. Mark Kirk (R-Highland Park) made a rare public appearance Thursday when Rep. Robert Dold’s (R-Kenilworth) campaign bus stopped outside the senator’s Highland Park home for a visit.

Take the unofficial, unscientific Patch poll and give us your comments. You get the results Sunday.
With election day approaching Tuesday and the nation’s eyes focused on the 10th Congressional District race between Rep. Robert Dold (R-Kenilworth) and Democratic challenger Brad Schneider of Deerfield, Patch is taking a very unscientific poll.

I look for leadership in deciding who I want to represent me in congress. I also look for someone who stands up for the issues important to me. Women’s health issues is high on that list. Any assessment of Congressman Bob Dold’s stance on women’s health issues is that he does not lead or stand up for women when it matters.

Supporting that right should include supporting the institutions that care about women’s health by providing basic health services. Bob Dold voted for the “Protect Life Act” - also known as the “Let Women Die Act.” This amendment …
