Vallas certainly has more appeal to reform-minded voters than Peraica.

IT DRIVES ME CRAZY!! That's why Todd Stroger keeps winning!! People like Commissioners Claypool and Suffredin attack him on everything and when it comes time for a general election, they and their supporters vote Stroger anyway just because he has a "D" next to his name!!

I voted for Peraica, I'd vote for Vallas.

He won the most votes of anyone in the Democratic gubernatorial primaries in 2002 in Cook County. He could make a strong showing.
