As the U.S. House races towards a vote on Obamacare, Illinoisans in five congressional districts are watching closely how their Democratic House members will be voting -- with or against House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate President Harry Reid? U.S. Reps Melissa Bean (8 CD), Bill Foster (14 CD), Debbie Halvorson (11 CD) and Phil Hare (17 CD) could be vulnerable in November, a We Ask America poll shows.
Right now, We Ask America shows GOP challenger Adam Kinzinger leading by 12 points over Debbie Halvorson and GOP challenger State Senate Randy Hultgren slightly over Bill Foster. Tea Party favorite Joe Walsh is within striking range of Melissa Bean and yet-unknown downstate Bobby Schilling is within 8 points of Phil Hare.
In Mark Kirk's open seat, right now GOP challenger Bob Dold is slightly behind 3-time Democrat candidate Dan Seals.
