Lindy Scott

A guest posting from Andrea Sheimo

Hi. I just wanted to spread the word on a campaign going on in the suburbs outside of Chicago, Illinois. Its a campaign between two very *typical* democratic candidates and one very unique democratic candidate in the democratic primary for the retiring Henry Hyde's former seat.

The unique candidate is an evangelical Christian and a professor at Wheaton College named Lindy Scott.

Lindy is gaining ground despite the fact that he has managed to raise less money and, in the beginning, less support within the party, than the two other candidates running. I think people within the party were (for obvious reasons) resistant at first but he is now running neck and neck with the other two candidates! It seems he is really speaking to the voters.

This is the final stretch - the last week of the campaign and Im trying to get the word out on this unique candidate. Its such an exciting campaign and an exciting time, too, because Lindy can actually win this primary. And he is the candidate most likely to go on to defeat the republican candidate replacing Hyde, Peter Roskam. This is a seat that has been held by republican Henry Hyde for 32 years!

Here is his website. Please read the piece on cherishing life under "issues." Its a great summary of his positions on the issues:

Im hoping that you'll mention him. Please consider it. He is so close. This race is tight and any word you can get out in support of him can really help!

Thanks so much!!

I just visited his site and I think he has some GREAT ideas, and GREAT explanation of the issues from a biblical perspective. Thank you for letting us know about him. I wish I lived in the area so I could vote for him!

You're welcome Playtah. Lindy is such a great representation of 'the rest of us' because he is a democrat *because* he is a Christian, not in spite of it.

And thank you Christian Democrat for posting my letter!!

**Please keep Lindy in your thoughts and prayers through Tuesday. Thanks!!
