Economist.com | Illinois’s Senate seat

I met Mr. Kathuria last night, and other than being a Republican he seems a viable candidate. I’m hoping to meet with him in the upcoming months and learn more about him, both his business and political interests. If he is truly a fiscal conservative, but not also a social conservative, he would be a marked improvement to our current senator, Peter Fitzgerald. And a Republican, I must unfortantly say, likely has a better chance of being elected than a Democrat in a state wide election here in Illinois.

That said, I would also like to see someone such as Mr. Kathuria elected, especially from someplace like Illinois which may be viewed as “traditional” – it would be a striking statement. Mt. Kathuria’s international business interests and high tech focus certainly bias me in his favor, I’ll see if I can agree with the rest of his political positions.
