Oberweis-Truax race: Crunch time or lunch time?

Doug Truax and Jim Oberweis, locked in the GOP primary race for U.S. Senate, appeared together at a McLean County GOP luncheon in Bloomington on Monday. Truax has been hitting Oberweis for spending a week in Florida in advance of Tuesday’s primary. Truax has accused Oberweis of being “arrogant” during the campaign, by only attending one debate and dodging others.

On Tuesday, it appears one man’s campaign event is another man’s lunch, as evidenced in this Tweet, courtesy of Tom Kacich of the Champaign News-Gazette.

The winner of the primary will challenge the formidable U.S. Sen. Dick Durbin, D-Ill., in November.
