CHICAGO- In a closely watched congressional race, Congressman Bobby Schilling (R) of East Moline has been endorsed by the Chicago Tribune over his challenger Democrat Cheri Bustos in the 17th Congressional race. That race, which depending on which poll you believe, appears to be tightening. The Tribune, in its endorsement, applauded Schilling for being "willing to make tough reforms" and demonstrating he "could take a reasoned stand and defend it". The Trib also said Schilling was the best choice because he can "help drive the federal government to fiscal solvency". The Tribune said Bustos was long on promises to protect social safety net programs but short on solutions.
