The big vote today

Inside the dark, smoky room today, Cook County’s Democratic committeemen voted (surprise) to slot Stroger Jr. into Stroger Sr.’s ballot slot. Most of the votes for Danny Davis came from the West Side and the near-west towns, in or around Davis’ Congressional district. Only two (15th and 16th wards) came from the South Side, heart of the Stroger machine. A few votes came from the north lakefront and north suburbs, according to an anonymous spy posting at The Capitol Fax Blog.
