IL-10: Seals Releases Poll, Hamos Cites $250K In Pledges

Yesterday, Swing State Project got ahold of a poll conducted for 10th Congressional District candidate Dan Seals by Anzalone Liszt.  The survey shows Seals (the Democrats' IL-10 candidate in both 2006 and 2008) with much higher name identification than State Rep. Julie ...

Yesterday, Swing State Project got ahold of a poll conducted for 10th Congressional District candidate Dan Seals by Anzalone Liszt.  The survey shows Seals (the Democrats' IL-10 candidate in both 2006 and 2008) with much higher name identification than State Rep. Julie Hamos (83% to 18%, respectively).  Not surprisingly, he is also way, way ahead of her at this early juncture:

Dan Seals: 63
Julie Hamos: 8
Elliot Richardson: 2
Undecided: 27
(MoE: ±4.9%)

Despite Seals' built-in advantage, Hamos has a good amount of time to introduce herself to the district -- though she'll need to raise a good amount of early money to do it. Head over to SSP to read the full polling memo, which is clearly intended to discourage her from pursuing the seat.

Speaking of which, Hamos appeared on Bill Cameron's WLS show on August 2 and had an extended conversation about her personal history, the upcoming campaign, and the issues of the day.  During the interview, she noted that her campaign has so far secured $250,000 in donation pledges (up from the $200,000 figure she cited in her recent interview with Progress Illinois). Listen to the entire WLS segment here.
