Endorsements for March 20, 2012 Democratic Primary in Illinois

Friends, forgive typos as I'm writing this at 1am. That is my dedication to you! :) Below are my endorsements for the primary election. As always, take these with a grain of salt and make your own careful decisions based on your own values. As previously stated, I'm a very progressive feminist values voter with a foundation in Catholic social teaching - if that's not your thing, these candidates might not be your thing and you should start your own rarely updated endorsement blog. If you need instruction on how to vote or what to expect, check out my guide on How to Vote.  Happy voting!
